Squirrels on a tree across from Moonlight Radiance Artisan Soaps Market
Eastern gray squirrels are very popular in Florida. These bushy-tailed members of the rodent family are easily found in woodland and urban areas, especially near oaks and hickories. They are active during the day, often feeding on the ground.
Squirrels hoard food in numerous small caches for later recovery. Right here in West Palm Beach we find them in parks and back yards of houses within urban environments and in the farmlands of rural environments.
