  •  crose, I think the "red" squirrels I am seeing are (2+ / 0-)

    the eastern grey squirrel with pigmentation change. As far as I know, the fox squirrel (which is a larger squirrel) is the only true red squirrel and their territory is further west.  

    Anyhow the local grey (getting more reddish) squirrel population has indeed decreased dramatically--you are likely right that it is a pathogen. I didn't think about the squirrels dying in their dens or nests.

    Fiscal conservative: a Republican ready to spend $5 to save a dime--especially if that dime is helping a non-donor.
