Coloration may vary from gray to brown with reddish tints. White underside with big bushy tail. Young squirrels can often be identified to their smaller less bushy tails and smaller body size.
Just about anywhere you have trees. Eastern gray squirrels build a type of nest, known as a drey, in the forks of trees. The drey consists mainly of dry leaves and twigs. the young are born naked with their eyes closed.
I watched as three young squirrels chased one another and was surprised when two appeared to "kiss" one another.
