This entry is part 2 of 6 in the series Beardsley Zoo  The River Otters (Lontra canadensis) were probably the most interesting animals at the Beardsley Zoo;  they definitely had the most people watching them when I was there.  They were swimming, flipping, and generally clowning around.  Another great exhibit, which even has a water […]

One of the Local Squirrels, Frustrated by the New Bird Feeder

Here’s a photo of one of my local hoodlums squirrels as he tries to figure out how to pillage my Nature Products Model 431 bird feeder.  So far, he’s been totally unsuccessful and is relegated to picking up scraps that the birds leave.  If you look closely at his fuzzy little face, you can see the […]
