Hey, that's okay, no need to apologise! This is what Project Noah is here for :) I've edited the title of your spotting, since you accidentally added the common name "fisher" to the scientific name box. It's a great photo and a great first spotting!

Nabeel is correct with their ID, this is a fisher rather than a mink :) Minks have a much more ferret-like appearance. This is still an absolutely wonderful spot though! He definitely looks startled by the snow on his nose! Cute :D
