My previous post resulted in many comments and also in identification of the creature who killed the duck.
Consensus is that it is a mink. Thank you for to everyone who took the time to send links to websites and those of you who shared your own knowledge and that of your friends.
I’ve been identifies! I’m a mink.
Jane Walker is a Newcastle photographer who creates framed photographs, photo trays and matted greeting cards reflecting the beauty of nature and gardens. Her recent interest in birds, owls and other wildlife is now being reflected in her posts. As a member of the Oshawa Camera Club, Jane has started to enter some of her photos for judging and appreciates the critiques by the judges. You'll be surprised at what shows up under the guise of "janewalkerscards".
That’s what I thought at first. I guess evryone and everything needs to eat!
Of course, why didnčt we think of that. Judy
