largest group of critters to winter over were the flying squirrels.
These were in two groups: the first having been a very late litter
that we had hand raised, the second a home invasion that we helped
live trap out.
Again the task was eagerly taken up by Jude who built more boxes and
found just the right locations.
This time it was Peggy who needed to do the climbing. These little
squirmy guys need to be handled just so, otherwise they’d be running
free in the trees rather than tucked safely in their new boxes. Of
course the tree hopping would come later that night, but this way
they new where they could find refuge (and a place to hoard their
stash of food.
