That is just amazing. Thank you for the photos.

Do these squirrels have flaps of skin between hands and legs and glide like our marsupial gliders?

Gleni, yes, if you click on the baby squirrel pic you can see the loose extra skin from arm to leg.
Two years, 12 & 13, she has nested in the bluebird house and hasn't chewed out the hole. We have another birdhouse that they had been using with the hole chewed out.

Interesting link for Bluebirds and Southern Flying Squirrels

Thanks Chickhill. The amount of information in that site. Amazing. Maintaining it to prevent link rot would nearly be a fulltime job!
