Last summer, they cut down a 50' tall tree in our front year because of its rotting trunk. Squirrels and a dozen or so species of birds frequented that tree, and my eight bird feeders seemed to need filling continuously. This spring, there are fewer squirrels and almost no birds to be seen. My bird feeders haven't needed refilling in over a month. Even the birds that were feeding through the winter aren't here any longer.
Seems really odd... There are still an abundance of trees around my neighborhood, just not the big one in my yard. In fact, my front yard still has a couple of large trees near the street and we have a nicely growing set of aspens in the back. What gives?
