Illustration of mink in John Burroughs’ “Squirrels and Other Fur-bearers,” 1909

Houghton Mifflin Company.  I believe Burroughs is the artist.

I swear I’ve got these guys in my neighborhood.  Tuesday marked the third sighting for me.  Either what I am seeing are mink or another species that resemble them.  They’re a bit bigger than this picture would suggest — bigger than weasels, anyway.
