What squirrels eat in the winter

Photo by Jim Bauer
Even when it's cold out, squirrels need to eat. They have food that they have hidden and also eat nuts, fruits, and berries for calories and fat to see them through the winter. Squirrels can also eat bugs, soil, mushrooms and animal bones. Squirrels need water too if they want to remain hydrated during winter.
