Default What is this and strutting turkeys

I don't know what this first animal is. Can anyone help me out?





Here are some strutting toms. Seems awful early for strutters.





I hope someone has an answer about those first three pics. I'm really getting some strange animals lately.

Blessings.....Pastorjim

nice pics of those strutters PJ! got some great color in those pics! as far as the smaller critter in the first 3 pics i would say its either a mink if the camera is close to water, and a weasel if not. tail looks a little thick for a weasel but its hard to tell.

No idea what that is. My first thought was a squirle, but its too big for that. Nice pics.

I would guess mink or possibly small fisher (don't know if they are native to your neck of the woods), but definitely some critter in the weasel family.

Pine Martin


The body size is too big for a weasel least IMO.
