I get a lot of wacky squirrel emails and stories sent to me. This has got to be one of my favorites:
Check this out. Pretty amazing situation. First time I’ve heard of a squirrel rampage.
I’m curious about folks experience with late breeding squirrels this year. The second breeding period seems to have been quite late on our campus (southern Maine, directly on the coast). I caught a female today who was still nursing, saw two other nursing females this week, and I saw young that are ~7 weeks old just emerging. I’ve been trapping here for 7 years and not previously encountered this. We have a good acorn (red oak) and low hickory mast. Anyone else seeing this?
Here they are folks, the Fall 2016 squirrelologists!! A nutty group indeed (he he he).
