    There are 2 types of squirrel nests:

    "A squirrel's home is a leafy nest located in a cavity or fork of a tree. Cavities suitable for squirrel nests occur most often in older trees, particularly white oaks, elms, sycamores and soft maples. These are preferred home sites, especially for winter and for nurseries, because they provide good protection from weather and enemies. Leaf nests are usually built in the tops of large trees and consist of a rough twig framework with a bulky pile of leaves heaped layer upon layer. The squirrel hollows out a nest cavity in the center of the leaves. "

    PS - Chip & Dale are chipmunks!!

    Some patrol the dark alleys, lending a helping hand to a dame in distress. Others wander aimlessly through the vast fields, gazing at the stars looking for signs of a distant life. One sits on a grand piano in a smoky corner bar, and between a sip of scotch and a drag of cigarette, sings the pain of long gone time to the ever few listeners. And yet one other, follows the contrail of the preceding plane, up there, in that cold and thin air, just to meet the rising sun, just so that he may, once again, run around and jump on trees and power lines.

    In their homes inside of trees. Haven't you ever seen Chip and Dale? They really have nest in trees or bushes.
