Deserted Red Squirrels

Yesterday, there was major squawking going on in my garden and there was a baby squirrel clinging to a shrub. He seemed a decent size, big feet and ears but a smallish body he needs to grow into. We have a birdhouse about 8 feet up so I'm guessing he fell out. We put him in a bucket for a bit and then his sibling fell out. Both were put back but I don't think there is a mother there. We put some peanut butter on the entrance and they ate it. Now what? Any suggestions? I use to see the mother scampering up the pole but haven't for days now.

Maybe the mother died.I don't know maybe you could call an wildlife animal rescue and they will take them.
