Has anyone noticed fewer squirrels in the last few weeks? I live in a suburban area and we have had a lot of squirrels in our back yard. Our yard backs up to a small wooded area and until a few weeks ago I would count up to 6 squirrels roaming our back yard. Lately, I have only seen one and he looked skinny. I'm wondering if this summers' drought killed off a lot of squirrels? In July when it was so dry we actually had squirrels stripping bark off of our trees to get at the moisture under the bark. Has anyone else noticed this?
