Glaucomys volansSouthern Flying Squirrel0000-00-00Dr. Veronica S. Pantelidis; Nick Pantelidis2"Nested" in our bluebird houses, one house on a pinetree and one in a wooded area, during the 1990s and 2000s. Would climb on hanging bird feeders at night to feed. We once watched them from our porch, using a flashlight. We startled a pair in one birdhouse one day and watched them climb round and round the pine tree to try to keep out of sight. They also used a birdhouse in the backyard of the house across the street. - 106 Lakeview Drive, Greenville, in Lake Glenwood subdivision.05_Sight
