Gray Squirrel Nest Box Cam

About Gray Squirrels: Gray squirrels build a nest known as a “drey”. Nests can be found in the forks of trees, hollowed out tree trunks, nest boxes and more. Nests consist mainly of dry leaves and twigs. Males and females may share the same nest for short times during the breeding season and during cold winter spells squirrels may share a drey to stay warm. Gray squirrels are crepuscular(more active early and late in the day). They do not hibernate.

You are watching live cams from Gray Squirrel nest boxes. The cams are located near Washington, DC and show Squirrel families.

I look so forward every night that when I get in the am all is well. It left a pit in my stomach when I couldn’t see them. They are so precious. Aren’t they suppose to be out on their own? I am new to this although I live in an area where there are lots of them. I have water dishes all around and give them fresh water and peanuts three times a day. They know who I am and can hear my walker.

I have one of those Ferris wheel corn cob holders attached to a tree in my yard and I love watching the squirrels on it.

I wondered the same thing. One night they were all there, then the next they were all gone. I wonder if something scared them away?

I saw on one cam view that one of the babies was hanging halfway out of the box but the shot of the box with hole didn’t show it. Is there another hole in the box we can’t see?

9/15 the babies are in the nest box under the fluff I see their tails and there’s movement
