Southern Flying Squirrel raids bird feeder

From Tahoe Donner

We were wondering what critter was raiding our bird feeder overnight recently, and tonight we caught our seed thief in action. I guess he's not really a thief since for all he knows, its a squirrel feeder. A quick internet search helped us with the identificaiton of this nocturnal mammal. The large nighttime eyes and extra skin folds on his side make the identification straight forward.
