Fisher Tracks but no rock piles

Fishers have become surprisingly common in the Boston suburbs. The fisher, a large member of the weasel family, used to be regarded as a very rare, deep woods animal. Now-a-days they appear to thrive in the woodland-suburban margin. Out yesterday in Harvard, three kinds of animal tracks were common: deer, rabbit, fisher.

I've heard fishers in Framingham, MA and people have said that they have seen them in Callahan State Park. Janet
