The gray squirrel is able to start reproduction at an early age of just a few months. The first mating period of gray squirrels occurs in January and the second period is in late spring or early summer. Squirrel courtship is noticeable when they start to chase each other up and down trees. The male will assist with building the nest but has no part in raising the young. As well as building their own nests they will readily use bird nesting boxes, and man made shelters.
