Squirrel Behavior

O.k. I have never studied squirrels or even spent much time thinking about them, but this seems like odd behavior. My squirrel has had her baby and kicked him out of the nest. That is normal, but now she is deconstructing the nest and taking it to Manurie's window. I watched her take apart the nest yesterday morning for about an hour. Then later in the day Manurie announced that she now had a squirrel nest in her window (which she was very happy about). I went to look and recognized the dried pattern on one of the longer palm fronds. This is my nest! Theo has been knocking my curtain down a lot lately -- maybe she didn't feel safe without the curtain over her nest. Anyway, I guess this means I don't have to clean up the nest.
