Where have all the squirrels gone?

Asked January 7, 2013, 5:40 PM EST

I live in Roseburg, Oregon. For the last couple of months I have not seen any squirrels. I have a number of bird feeders, and suet baskets, normally they are frequented by many squirrels along with the birds; lately plenty of birds, not any squirrels! Where have they gone?

I have not heard of any disease or die off issue with squirrels in our local area. I have calls in to both the state fish and wildlife people and our OSU Wildlife faculty in Corvallis. I will let you know what others think when they contact me.
