During a storm of any kind a squirrel will either return to its nest and place its long bushy tail over its back & head for warmth or it will seek out a hiding place in a secluded dry covered place were it will be safe until the storm has passed.
I dont think we have squirrels in Australia but I like the idea that they fly in the air and land in the mud. Thanks for making me smile.
Of course. it is called " migrating "
yes - that is exactly what happens!!!
