    Default Is this a fisher?

    Checked cameras today and found this. Picture of squirrel for reference. Most are saying fisher, but a few saying mink, not big enough to be a fisher.

    My guess would be a Pine Martin. Smaller and I believe generally darker than a Fisher but coloration can vary quite a bit. Too big for a mink I think.

    edit: upon further research, the seemingly short legs and lack of lighter throat tends to support it being a Mink.

    Not big enough to be a Fisher. Pine Martin or Mink.
    "Camo" is perfectly acceptable as a favorite colour.

    I'd say its a mink. Any marten I've seen has been reddish in color.

    My guess would be a big mink. Beautiful critter.

    I am favoring that it is a younger Fisher.
    Compared to the Squirrel picture, it is already looking like it is over 3 pounds which would be about the limit of a large Mink.
    How near to a swamp is this camera?

    I'd say young fisher doesn't really have the right features for a mink

    Bush is generally dry. Closest water sources are a creek and a drainage ditch that are both 200+ yards from camera.

    I would guess small Fisher; I don't believe a pine marten is that big. Nice looking black squirrel in the second picture

    Wrong color for a pine marten, little to big for a mink that do not do a lot of tree climbing, I will go with a fisher.
