Photo 7b    This is a squirrel's nest. (Up-close)  This picture was taken during a birding walk at Maplewood Nature Center, Maplewood, MN on December 3, 2011.  リスの巣     Squirrel photos  This nest could be a Red squirrel's one. We've learned from naturalist Matt of Arboretum that gray squirrels tend to make nests near the tips of branches using leaves and twigs while red squirrels tend to build nests near trunks using shredded bark. To our surprise, Matt adds, "More flying squirrels live in Arboretum than gray squirrels. Flying squirrels often share nests with other squirrels like gray squirrels because flying squirrels are nocturnal (only active at night) while gray squirrels are active during the day. Flying squirrels visit bird feeders at night." That's why we've never seen flying squirrels.
