New resident squirrel

Well we will be revamping the squirrel cages next year lol. We did the first release of the season yesterday. Well when I get these little ones they are so sweet and love me to death. LOL the idea is to wean them then let them get as wild as possible then release. Well We had so many this year that the one of my opossum cages became the new squirrel cage. The catch being that the possums are nice and easy to catch out of the cage at release time. Squirrels are a different story , we caught some of them in the nest box as planned. But they are so wary that the least noise and they are gone. We took a net to catch the rest well one did a 360 around the cage so fast that he launched himself right out before we could do a thing. We have about 80 or 90 feet of 20 foot high hedge and fruit trees in our backyard. Well guess where one of our releases will be living. The rest of them are in their new home in a gorgeous forest nearby. Yup really need some work on the nest boxes for next year.
