They typically feed on fruits and nuts in fall and early winter. They favor acorns, hickory nuts, and walnuts and often store them for use in the winter. In late winter and early spring they prefer tree buds and in the summer they eat fruits and berries.
Most adult squirrels first breed in mid-December or early January, and 5 to 10 percent of older females may breed again in June. The gestation period is 42 to 45 days, after which gray squirrels typically give birth to three young.
