When I first saw this critter, while wading downstream, I thought maybe it was a fisher, as it was perched over my little crick staring down into a seam in the water as if attempting to snag a trout for dinner. It’s tail, which is the longest tail I’ve ever seen on a black squirrel, also threw me off, not to mention the size of the critter itself. I waded to within 10 feet of it before scampered back into the tag alders.
