Eastern Gray Squirrel Diet

Squirrels eat a variety of foods, including berries, nuts, seeds, mushrooms and even leaf buds from trees, like this one.  There is a tree in the side yard (I'm not sure of the name) that the squirrels love when it first puts out buds.  They are huge buds because they open into a compound leaf with several branches.  So, before they unfurl, the squirrels snack on them like eating an ice cream cone.
