An article published in The Washington Post on Sunday says that squirrels are eating things that they usually don’t seem as interested in, such as leftover Halloween pumpkins and trash. What’s going on?
It seems that there are fewer acorns available for squirrels to eat this year. Last year oak trees in the Washington, D.C. region dropped many acorns. This year there are fewer acorns than usual, possibly because of weather. People from other areas have also reported fewer acorns. Without the usual acorn supply, many squirrels may starve this winter.
