A Pair of Squirrel Websites of Note

I would like to give a shout out to a couple of squirrel-related websites that have come to my attention recently.

The first, At the Edge of the Wood, is a blog that documents, through essay and original photography, the wildlife of the author's backyard in Long Island, NY. The author, KC Bailey, uses a remotely triggered camera, an outdoor studio, and some creative set design, and the results, as you can see in the examples below, are stunning.

The second site is called What Will Squirrels Eat, and its subject is exactly what the title implies. The author and her husband, after moving to a wooded area, started experimenting by leaving different foods on their deck, and documented which foods the squirrels ate and which they refused. Every few days a new report is posted, along with photos!

Thanks to the authors of both of these sites for spreading a little more squirreliness across the internet!
