I live in the Ozarks so the wildlife I watch are not "cityfied", but instead have a harder life. In my front yard stands a white oak that has to be 150 years old. It is a prolific producer of acorns and the critters from the area all show up to feast. Deer, turkeys, and "Rocky" the grey squirrel. I noticed Rocky a couple years ago because he was missing a part of his right ear from a fight and sorta kept an eye on him. He was a very agressive squirrel and had a set of gonads that I don't see how he could walk with them. Anyhow, I watched Rocky dominate the front yard from chasing other squirrels to barking at deer - turkeys and me. I feed the birds every day and Rocky was almost always FIRST at an easy meal. When he had enough and went off to nap, then the other squirrels would stop in. In the spring , Rocky would let females share in his bounty but fiercly kept the other males at bay. As time passed, Rocky started to show his age. His feet hair turned grey/white, same with his ears, and most of his tail, but his spirit didn't dim at all. It seems the older he got - the more agressive he was. "Crabby old fart" was about to become his name. About 5 days ago Rocky didn't show up and I started watching just for him. Then 3 days ago the other males started fighting over the food. Since Rocky probably became lunch for a hawk, the squirrel wars have started. This hasn't produced another Rocky II yet but with the genes he so prolifically spread and territory defended, it won't be long before there is another squirrel king of the front yard. Looking forward to it.
