Southern Flying Squirrel

Glaucomys volans


Seen on an Augusta-Aiken Audubon Field Trip. These small squirrels often nest in abandoned bird nesting cavities or bluebird houses. They are omnivorous. They do not actually fly but have loose skin between their fore and hind legs and they can use this to glide from tree to tree.
