Happy New Year 2016

Our new year's day started with a wonderful sighting; first it looked like a strange duck, it was too small to be an otter.
We think it is a mink!
The American Mink is a species that does live in the Yukon, but I don't think I ever seen one. He stayed long enough for me to take a picture and then disappeared. We were at the Takhini river, towards Kusawa Lake. We also did see common goldeneyes

This afternoon, it looked like we saw one male with 6 females. But one of those 6 was a strange duck, a bufflehead.
The beginning of the year very good.
But so was the ending, celebrating with friends here at home, Northern lights were spectacular and we had one beautiful colorful firecracker!

Happy Nee Year to all of you that still do visit me here at times!
