This was not a good week for animals venturing onto area roadways as there has either been more roadkill than usual, or I have not been particularly observant. The remnants of a gray squirrel were visible for a few days on the next block but have now vanished. Today's drive to the interstate (a mere five miles) revealed a skunk, a raccoon, another squirrel, and a very small deer, along with several dead somethings in the ditches and so not quite visible. The crows, at least, were able to take advantage of the situation.
It has been some time since friend Stumpy has been sighted, so I fear that our tailless squirrel will not be raiding the feeders this spring.
