This little guy has been bringing a smile to our faces

He is solar powered and is quite animated on a sunny day.

Outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen with cameras are being recruited by the Pennsylvania Game Commission for a special project.
The agency, together with the Pennsylvania Biological Survey, is working to create a mammal atlas identifying where in the state all of the 64 mammal species that live here are found.
The commission is asking “citizen scientists” to snap photos of wildlife whenever possible and upload those to pamammalatlas.com. Those who register can browse species distribution maps, statistics, photographs and descriptions of each wild mammal species in Pennsylvania.

5. 5 Fun Facts: Puzzling over Puzzles
May 14, 2013 by
- The first jigsaw puzzle was created in 1767 when John Spilsbury, an English cartographer, chopped up a wooden map of Britain and challenged the public to reassemble it. He called it a “dissected puzzle.”
- Jigsaw puzzles got their name because they were originally built by painting pictures on large sheets of wood, then using a jigsaw to cut out the pieces.
- While jigsaw puzzles have always been popular, they were most prevalent during the Great Depression among bored, down-on-their-luck folks looking for cheap ways to pass their time.
- If you’re up to the challenge, the Double Retrospect is the largest jigsaw puzzle ever made with 32,000 pieces spanning 17 feet. Creator Keith Haring estimates it will take about 400 hours to complete.
- Recent studies show that solving puzzles and practicing a second language every day can reduce the risk of neurodegenerative diseases, improve cognitive function, and ward off memory loss.
