a little squirrel press

Great article in the Portland Press Herald on Sunday, Nov 6, 2011 about our squirrel project.


PS.  For those who commented on the blog about spam…. yup, we need a serious filter.

a salty discovery (perhaps)

November 2nd, 2011 by nperlut

While out doing telemetry, one of the squirrelologists decided to dig around at the entrance hole to a tree cavity.  This tree is in the central, perhaps busiest parts of campus.  He found half of a blue mussel shell.  Although this picture is not the best, close inspection shows no real evidence of having been cooked.  Perhaps a squirrel foraging on the beach carried it over?  A gull certainly could have carrier it over too.  The closest sandy beach is 0.31 miles away.  Hmmmm delicous.
