|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.

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