Missing Squirrels



There are two huge trees in my yard, but alas, no squirrels. I think the neighborhood dogs must keep them away. When I lived in Missouri near the river there was a large population of squirrels. The largest number I ever saw visiting the feeder in my front yard at one time was fourteen. This included the young ones.

When I lived in Arizona, there were no squirrels anywhere near my home and I frequented a couple of online squirrel cams which have disappeared over the years.

    When I lived in Chicago, we always had squirrels about. Now that I live in Tucson, I don’t see any, but there are some ground rodents of some sorts in undeveloped parts of the city.


    • Had a gopher in my yard once in Arizona. He was busy. Flooded him out so could catch him alive and relocate him. Should have seen him come up soaking wet and sputtering. There were some prairie dogs a mile or so from where I lived.
