I recently ran across a live video on ustream.tv that pointed at a platform feeder.  While many birds frequent the station, the primary guests are red and flying squirrels.  The Great Alaskan Red Squirrel Cam operates 24 hours each day and almost always has activity.

What makes this cam particularly interesting is the location – North Pole, Alaska.  With an environment vastly different than most of ours, the location offers a glimpse of wildlife in a remote section of the world.

The host, Bob, affectionately refers to his homestead as the Permafrost Ranch.   He is readily available to chat with guests and will zoom on a particular species as it feeds.  He also has a second camera that takes a photo every two seconds, an updated blog and some great wildlife photos served up for all to see. 

Take a look when you get a chance.  It’s a nice journey and you’ll likely meet Bubba, the red squirrel that makes frequent visits each day.

We started this blog to share our habitat project and related topics of interest.  We live in a suburban area that is quickly losing the wildlife corridors so essential to the circle of life.

Because of that, we have set a goal to design and build a refuge in our backyard.  This is a project that has a beginning, but is meant to be a living work of natural art.  There is no completion date, but there is a vision of beauty.

Over time, we hope to fill these pages with our experiences as well as knowledge we attain through hard work and research.

Sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labor!  If you’d like to pitch in, we could always use a hand!
