Wild Fact: Squirrels

Gray squirrels and fox squirrels live throughout Georgia. Both species are breeding this time of year and will have a second mating season from June – July. An average litter size is 3, and only the mother squirrel raises the young. Their home is either in a leaf nest or in a cavity of some sort (a hole in a tree, a nest box, or perhaps your attic). Some folks enjoy watching the antics of squirrels while others get annoyed when their birdfeeders are raided. Still others find these furry-tailed rodents tasty, so they hunt them during Georgia’s squirrel season from August 15 – February 28.

WILD Facts is a regular feature written by Linda May, a wildlife interpretive specialist with the Georgia DNR Wildlife Resources Division based at the Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center in Mansfield, Georgia.
