Another delightful baby....

July 7, 2011

Yesterday I posted the pictures of a little one at home…here’s a little one who came and unabashedly looked up at me in Des Peres Creek, in Forest Park!

That’s the

American Mink

Danny Brown had introduced me to the place on Des Peres Creek where I could sit patiently and wait for the family of minks to appear; I think it’s a mother (and a father, I’m not sure!) and a litter of 3 or 4 babies.

I was very lucky indeed to have this curious little one come out, and here’s a video of it going along the river bank:

It’s been very hot and muggy and I have not been able to spend a lot of time wandering around Forest Park as I can do at other times of the year! But the mink area is a usual part of my morning walk these days…some lovely birds to see, even if the minks are elusive!
