I agree with Eugenia. Cool animals, and really common. Sometimes they can even be a bit frustrating for folks who maintain bird boxes, as they love to chew, and they are almost impossible to discourage, once they have chosen a box. When I discover flying squirrels in a bird box, I usually just hang another box nearby and let the squirrels have the first one.
