A Squirrel’s Eye View: My Drey
I’m on my way home! I live in a nest called a drey that is made of twigs with the leaves still attached. Do you see it in the top of my tree? It is about the size of a football, maybe a little bigger. I built it way up high and lined it with dry grass, shredded bark, moss and feathers. This is my summer drey, in the winter I will make a new nest in a hollow tree trunk. I’ll let you in on a little secret…this is not my only home! I have dreys in all of my favorite places.
