yes, my friend saw that once. after a tree collapsed a squirrel mom had 2 bring 4 kinds 2 the new home on another tree nearby (thats y they build 10-15 nests just in case). After bringing them all 2 the new nest she got exhausted so deeply she just took a nap in the middle of the road just like that, n only after 10 minutes came back 2 actually move away n try 2 climb that tree 2 check the babies.
