Freezing rain this morning. We took a ride around in the truck, got breakfast, and headed for home.

They are all over the place here on the island. More now than I can remember. Must by a cycle thing and they are at a peak right now around here. We have grays here with some of those nasty and destructive reds.

RR that's how it is around me. I see more deer than squirrel. And it never used to be that way.

While deer hunting in northern Missouri the last week I must have had 20 to 30 greys around me every sit. Never seen so many at one time. Kept me entertained lol

Squirrels will migrate out of an area if there is a failure in the mast crops. Where I hunt deer there are white oak acorns and hickory nuts every where and the White oak had a banner season this year and squirrels are everywhere..

I have not been able to be in the woods much yet this year but all of the squirrels I see around us in the southwest corner of Michigan are all black phase squirrels. I have not seen a regular fox squirrel all year.

The black phase squirrels seem to have come farther and farther south over the years....I don't think we had any 3 or 4 years ago. We seem to have more and more and now they are the only ones I seem to see.

It sounds like grey and fox squirrels can both go through a black phase and we mostly have fox squirrels but these black squirrels all seem smaller than the fox squirrels we usually have. There doesn't seem to be a shortage of them around here, though.

Given the chance...the red pine squirrel will bite-off the testicles of male gray squirrels.

Certain forested lots can get "shot-out" for squirrels,

I've got a pesky herd of blacks and grays hammering my bear bait!
