Reunion With Squirrel Buddies After Hurricane Irma in Florida
5 October 2017
I was delighted to find the Florida Backyard squirrels alive and well after Hurricane Irma rolled through – we threw a little peanut party. I didn’t get back until September 16th and they were waiting. A little wet and ragged, but OK.
Their trees were pretty much de-leafed by winds gusting to 80 mph or so, but it looked like the two mothers with kittens must have moved them out of the high oak tree nests before or early during the storm and they are probably OK. Animals have a natural survival instinct and squirrels will move their kits down into the palmetto tree crowns if need be. Big palmetto trees do a lot better in the high wind. I will be putting up squirrel nest boxes in the trees later this fall. More on that later.
Interbreeding turned grey squirrels black. Evidence points to faulty pigment gene passed to grey squirrel from fox squirrel: here.
