While I was away for a month (don’t be sad for me, I was doing research in the Galapagos) the mighty Squirrelologists had a series of fascinating field observations. Hopefully I can remember some of the highlights:
Rocket: observed, on two occasions, white-breasted nuthatches (I believe he said two birds together) going into a squirrel nest, and only leaving when the squirrel returned.
Jeremy: while walking through the center of campus as dusk, a flying squirrel flew into him. Luckily no injuries on either side. Jeremy also observed a grey squirrel crossing above the road on utility wires fall off the wires, land on the pavement, and run away.
