Eastern gray squirrels (Sciurus carolinensis) are one of the most common species of squirrels found in North America, particularly in the eastern United States and parts of Canada. They typically have gray fur with white underparts and a bushy tail, and they are highly adaptable to various habitats, including urban areas, parks, forests, and suburban neighborhoods. These omnivorous squirrels primarily feed on nuts, seeds, fruits, and berries, occasionally supplementing their diet with insects, bird eggs, and small vertebrates. Eastern gray squirrels are diurnal and known for their acrobatic abilities, often seen leaping between tree branches or bounding across the ground. They are commonly encountered in urban environments, where they may become accustomed to humans and even seek food from people. Overall, Eastern gray squirrels are resilient creatures, thriving despite habitat loss and other challenges. // Image Credit: The viviparous quadrupeds of North America, John James Audubon

Nuthatches are skilled foragers often found in woodlands and gardens across North America, Europe, and Asia. Nuthatches are known for their ability to move headfirst down tree trunks and even hang upside-down while foraging for insects and seeds. They build their nests in tree cavities and crevices, often using mud and other materials to seal the entrance and create a cozy, safe space for raising their young. The name "nuthatch" comes from the bird's feeding behavior. These beautiful birds have a unique way of opening nuts, such as acorns or hazelnuts. They wedge the nuts in a crevice and use their strong bills to hammer or "hatch" them open. This puzzle is based on an 1768 illustration by James Bolton.
