The Eastern Gray Squirrel, one of the most familiar animals in eastern U.S., is not timid around bird feeders in wooded residential areas. They’ll visit feeders year-round, but arrive en masse when the snow flies!
The prominent bushy tail becomes larger and fuller with age. At maturity, it can be half the total length of a squirrel and is a thing of beauty. A gray squirrel isn’t all that big – about a pound – but the tail gives a much different impression!
