A few of us neighbors are having trees taken down today. We had a one removed that was in poor shape and some dead branches trimmed. The tree guys knocked on my door with this
Apparently the nest fell out of my neighbor's tree. You may wonder how I've ended up as it's caretaker, well I'm wondering about that too.
Anyway, my instructions are to put the nest in a shallow box and keep the nest warm with a heating pad. Hopefully tonight Mother Squirrel will return and take her babies. Did you know that squirrels always build a backup nest, just in case? I learned that today.
Wish us luck!
Update, Mama squirrel came back late in the evening and got her babies!
