Squirrels are members of the order Rodentia and comprise 50 genera and 273 species that are spread worldwide.

Tree squirrels live mostly in tree nests called dreys, which they build high in the forks of trees. Drays are approximately the size of a football and are made of twigs, leaves or pine needles or grass. Shredded grasses, fresh leaves, moss, and lichens are used to line the inside of the nest. Sometimes tree squirrels may make their nests in a hollow trunk, inhabit a permanent tree den, or take over a rook's nest, constructing a roof over it. Red squirrels in some areas also nest in middens in the ground.

Ground squirrels (like prairie dogs and chipmunks) create underground tunnel systems called burrows, often with multiple entrances and chambers. Some ground squirrels use rocks and shrubs to hide burrow entrances. Ground squirrels use similar materials as tree squirrels to line the subsoil sleeping chambers. Many of the ground dwellers become dormant in winter (hibernate) or summer (estivate).

Most species are primarily vegetarian and are fond of seeds and nuts; some eat insects or supplement their diet with animal protein.
you can usually see them in trees or even running around in the woods. If you want to see one you better go somewhere that is not close to sound, away from any habitation and away from a big lake. You can certainly see them near nut trees.
