size of squirrel babies?

Our local squirrels where clearly pregnant and we are waiting to see the babies. At what size do they leave the nest?

We seem to have some smaller ones around but they are almost the size of the adults - could these be this years babies? I would have expected to see small squirrels maybe a bit bigger than a chipmunk.

RE: size of squirrel babies?

Squirrels will be bigger than a chipmunk when leaving the nest. Will try to find some picture links for you.
I've seen plenty in their outdoor quarters at the wildlife center, and have pics from the ones who peeked out our maple tree nestbox last year.
