Thanks Daniele! Much appreciated. Thanks for all the great info on the mink. I got a bit lazy on this one:(
Congratulations Bill! Your spotting has been chosen for Project Noah Fact of the Day: "The American mink (Neovison vison) is a semiaquatic species of mustelid native to North America, though human intervention has expanded its range to many parts of Europe and South America. Since the extinction of the sea mink, the American mink is the only extant member of the genus Neovison. The American mink is a carnivore which feeds on rodents, fish, crustaceans, frogs, and birds. In its introduced range in Europe it has been classified as an invasive species linked to declines in European mink, Pyrenean desman, and water vole populations. ~WikipediaAmerican Mink (Neovison vison) spotted in Illinois, USA by PN member beaker98"'https://www.facebook.com/projectnoah/pho...

Cute little guy:)
