JONA KORZINSKI of Seaview, Wash., sure got a surprise when she went out to check her bird feeder in the backyard recently. Inside were two BABY SQUIRRELS, pictured. They slept and slept and slept, she reported, and didnt even go for the peanut butter. When mama didnt return, Jona called the WILDLIFE CENTER OF THE NORTH COAST (www.coastwildlife.org), and someone came to rescue the sleepy pups.
Perhaps their mother would have returned if Seaview had a bridge like Nutty Narrows in Longview, Wash., pictured, inset, which has saved many a squirrels life by offering an up-in-the-air alternative to running across the street.
Speaking of Nutty Narrows, according to The Daily News, the squirrel bridge has been nominated to be listed in the citys historic register, and its going to be nominated for a listing on the National Register of Historic Places, to boot (http://tinyurl.com/nutbridge). If the builder, AMOS PETERS, were still with us, the Ear bets hed be smiling.
