The Eastern Gray Squirrel is the native American mammal people most frequently see east of the Mississippi River. It prefers to den inside trees, but will construct large nests of leaves in the canopy if tree cavities are not available. An average of two to three blind, hairless young make up a litter. Litters are produced once or twice a year, in February and March and again in July through September. The young are weaned at eight or nine weeks, when their mother abandons them.
I have lots of these gray squirrels back home in my back yard in Millersville, Maryland. They just love my bird feeders. This squirrel spotting is at Crooked River State Park in St Marys Georgia.
