Wow, a Long-tailed Weasel

I was delighted to see this Long-tailed Weasel today as it has been a long time since I have seen one, presumably because they are more common in Colorado at higher altitudes than I frequent and because they said to be more nocturnal (though not exclusively). It is interesting that when little guy appeared a Mountain Chickadee flew into a tree above calling repeatedly (weasels predate bird nests and anything they can catch so clearly not welcomed by local birds).
