what Happened to All The Squirrels?
Original post made by Paulette, Val Vista, on Jan 16, 2014
I've noticed lately that I haven't seen any ground squirrels or tree squirrels. I don't even see any squirrel nests in the trees either. I'm wondering if the city poisoned them or what? I also don't see as many raptors, crows, Jays,pigeons, etc. Maybe we just got rid of so much habitat that they all died or left. When I first moved here, we use to see possums in our yard and quail and all kinds of wildlife. Now, it's a rare occasion to see a raccoon even. But, not seeing squirrels really is quite odd. I would've never dreamed that squirrels would disappear from our neighborhood. Huh! I know it's winter; but, alot of these critters live here year round. Where else is a squirrel going to go? Maybe the Clampetts moved in and granny is cooking up some squirrel stew. Just wondering...I miss the little fellas...
