Do Squirrels Build Nests in Trees?

Answer

Tree squirrels build nests in the fork of tree branches called dreys. The dreys are made of tree barks and twigs and have to be maintained constantly. Sometimes they may also build their nests in tree hollows where woodpeckers have vacated. Such nests are called dens. However ground squirrels make tunnels in the ground.
