White Pines, Minks - UPDATE January 20, 2020

The full version of ‘Eastern White Pine: The Tree Rooted in American History’ is now on Youtube. Here is the link as promised White PineWhite Pineon November 17, 2019 https://youtu.be/bQs7novlvtA. It’s 57 minutes of my favorite tree that towers over all the others in this area and is also a favorite of bears and some other wildlife as I say during the 40-44 minute time slot. Produced by Ray Asselin, it features my friend Bob Leverett, President and Founder of the Eastern Native Tree Society. Somehow, Ray and his team came up with perfect New MinkNew Minkpictures of wildlife to go with my words. Good job throughout.

Here at the WRI, the picture of New Mink shows him or her as we usually see it approach. I’d see the wide white chin patch and familiarity with our bologna procedures and think it was Clear. Now I’m waiting for another Clear to show up and give me hope that a Clear did not end up in a trap at the beginning of November.

I have a favorite name for New Mink from among the names you all suggested, but I’m waiting to see what others think and if any more names come up.

Thank you for all you do.
