drey

the nest of a squirrel, typically in the form of a mass of twigs in a tree


My son wrote a “report” on squirrels the other day. One of the words he used was drey. I had never seen it before. Already in the first grade my son is teaching me things I never knew. His (and my daughter’s) school years are going to be a fun ride!

    I knew about “dray” from the days when horses were still used to pull them, but I never heard of “drey”. What’s more, that word isn’t even in our dictionary. How in the world did Ben ever learn it? That is one great and smart teacher he’s got!!

    Yeah, that’s really interesting that it’s not in the American Heritage Dictionary. It’s in both the Merriam-Webster Unabridged and the New Oxford American.
