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.
