Both blogs have photographs of rodents on them. Both are rather cute. Both are Canadian rodents too although the US has both in some areas of our country. This rodent is in the weasel family, the Pine Marten.
The Martens prefer mature boreal forests of conifers or mixed forests of conifers and hardwood where they find prey, dens and protection from predators.
This one was found in Algonquin Provincial Park near to campers and the camper’s garbage. The Martens invade the trash containers and feast in there for hours. They are rather shy, but will fight each other fiercely. They are basically solitary and very territorial, but males will tolerate females. Except for breeding season, martens are solitary.
They are agile tree climbers and will prey on other rodents like squirrels and chipmunks. Before we got there, three Martens were terrorizing a red squirrel until it was caught and killed. If observant, you might see one slinking though the woodlands.
