The Winnie the Pooh factor.

This southern flying squirrel has been gorging on peanuts and if he isn't careful he may not fit through the cage to get back out.

We put out a feeder at night specifically for flying squirrels.
They come around from late fall till early spring depending on the weather.

Glaucomys volans

The Southern Flying Squirrel is one of two species of the genus Glaucomys, found in North America (the other is the somewhat larger Northern type, Glaucomys sabrinus).

It is found in deciduous and mixed woods in the eastern half of North America, from southeastern Canada, to Florida, USA.
