Mustela frenata - Long-tailed Weasel commented on by ScientiaGulo Eau Plaine, Wisconsin, USA9 years ago

Sorry KarenP, I think I have to agree with Xiaoxuan, I think that this is an young American mink. When not in a white phase I've never seen a brown long-tailed weasel that was this dark, I'm also pretty sure that whenever they are in a brown phase that they still have a lighter underside and lighter paws. The long-tailed weasel also has proportionally larger ears when compared to it's head size. I've attached the sister weasel link to the mink one posted above: In addition though I'm sure it is not unheard of for a long-tailed weasel to prey on snakes, minks more commonly prey on snakes muskrats and rabbits while long-tailed weasels more commonly prey on moles mice and chipmunks.

All that being said I've been trying to get a clear shot at a resident mink for a year now and like the weasels as KarenP said they are fast little critters.

I'm a bit of a mustelid fanatic so I always love to see such a great picture. Nice Photo!

Thanks Geodialist! I was going away for a bit and just wanted to get these pictures up so I didn't have a massive buildup and so I uploaded them without IDs (bad habit to get into). However the site recommendation is great and I'll be sure to use it for the next set of D&Ds. How is the guide coming along?

It's either a cherry-faced meadowhawk, a white-faced meadow hawk or a ruby meadowhawk. I'm not sure it's possible to tell without seeing the face

Thanks! I will tonight, I saw some of you earlier comments on some other dragonfly pictures about the guide you're putting together, I'm looking forward to seeing it!
