How can I see flying squirrels?
Because they are noctural, flying squirrels are difficult to see just walking through the forest. During the day flying squirrels are usually a sleep in snags (dead trees) or dreys (stick nests). You can try knocking on hollow trees with holes when you are walking through the forest and if you are lucking you might just see one. Most of the pictures on this website are taken by doing just that..although we cheat…we know flying squirrels are in the cavities because they have radio collars.
