    Cute!
    How old is this little one? Is he a single?

    Edit: Just read your other thread, I believe there
    are two, correct?

    Edit again: BEAUTIFUL nest box, did you make that?

    I had three to release this weekend and they were 14 weeks old. They had a ball running around exploring, then coming back to the RC occasionally to make sure it was still there. I am glad they are staying in the area so far, but I was suprised in a short 48 hour period how much more wild they became. I can't even bribe them with a treat to come close to me. I gues I did my job right, but I am sad to see them go. It is obvious they are loving life in the trees. Ungrateful damn squirrels.....

    That is a awesome nest box or squirrel condo as we call it. I bought two of them from NutsAboutSkwerls. They are fantastic, well built, safe from predator squirrel houses. I can't say enough good things about them. I put them in with the squirrels the last couple of weeks to get used to them before release. it worked out great, they knew exactly what the houses were and that they were theirs. Here is a better picture of the whole thing.

    I think I have nest boxs from the same guy? He is not cheap but they are well built and very deep with internal and external predator guards. I reinforce mine with hardware cloth, in part to prevent the squirrel inhabitants from chewing holes in them!

    They may be a bit standoffish for now but I bet you will see them around and they will visit to let you know they are alright (and to get treats!).
