At the Bubbler Pond ~ American Mink

March 23, 2014  •  1 Comment

 

The bubbler cam caught a visitor on Friday night, 3/21/14, just after 10 pm. We've had these creatures come before and this is the first time for the year. We are still in a drought situation and American Mink (Mustela vision or Neovison vision) need to be near water. They are elusive, mostly nocturnal, semi-aquatic creatures with webbed feet. They may live up to 6 years in the wild, but usually only 2 years.  You can read more about them here:  http://mdc.mo.gov/conmag/2009/10/plants-and-animals

Congratulations, Margy, on catching this elusive night visitor. Exciting to think they are in your neighborhood.
