SEE THE FLYING SQUIRRELS? – Marilyn Armstrong

I thought those were leaves hanging on the trees. Then I cropped the rather huge picture way down in size and suddenly, I realized there are no leaves on the trees. It’s the beginning of March. There won’t be any leaves for another three months.

So what were those things hanging on the tree? If not leaves, then what are they?

Look at all those flying squirrels
Can you see the flying squirrel clinging to the post, near the top?

It turns out it is a mass of flying squirrels. For some reason, last night we didn’t have any raccoons, but we had a plethora, a big gathering of flying squirrels. In the air, on the feeders, in the tree.

I wonder why we didn’t get any raccoons?

  1. That is so weird! Sort of creepy. Imagine taking an evening walk and walking into that? I haven’t used them yet, but I have a pair of night vision goggles that my late husband used. That would be neat to see in my woods.

    1. Virtually every place in the U.S. and Canada has one, two or more types of flying squirrels. It’s just unless you have a bird feeder, you probably never see them. Most people discover them because they can’t figure out why their feeders keep getting emptied every night. Night vision goggles would be VERY cool!
