We have Mink!

I was in my boat a couple of days ago, coming through the cut between Snake and Coyote Islands in The Oxbow, when I noticed a small animal swimming across from one island to the other. As I got closer I got a really good look and peered into this really cute little face. By the time I realised I should be taking photos, this little guy was swimming away from me, so I wasn’t able to photograph his face.mink

However, a quick search on Wiki soon confirmed that this was indeed a mink.

I found a better photo on the NYS Parks website

Cute eh!   And he’s a regular here too.  It’s so good to see that these native animals are doing well in this area.

  1. I’ve seen mink along the canal a few times this summer & last! Cute critters, and fairly bold…they are not bothered by people or boats.
