There are a couple of neighborhoods in Pittsburgh PA that have populations of black squirrels. Ironically one of them is called Squirrel Hill.

I live in New York City, in a suburban borough, and we have flying black and grey squirrels..........it is a joy to see them chasing each other up a tree, and jump from one tree to the other......I feed them along with the birds.... lots of joy........

My sister-in-law lives in a suburb outside of Detroit, MI and has a lot of black squirrels--probably more black ones than the regular grey ones. She lives across the road from a park so gets them in her yard all of the time.

When my parents lived in a more forested part of a Syracuse 'burb they had a few black squirrels.

I have only seen one black squirrel around here and that was climbing a tree in a park area. It's strange but I don't see many squirrels in this area for whatever reason, even out in the more rural areas.

I don’t believe I have ever seen a black squirrel or a white one, they’re all grey around here, and I have a LOT of those.

I have only in the past couple of years started seeing chipmunks, but they’re not common at all.

No, no chippies here in SWFL either. I love chippies. We used to vacation at Lake Carmi in Vermont. Always took site #10 because it had chippies that would eat out of your hand! We went there for years. Each generation taught the new one not to be afraid of humans. I hope they never learned a lesson.

You would love it here then. We live in an area that is wooded and we get lots of chipmunks around here. They have pretty much gotten used to people and with so many of us feeding the birds they generally come right up on the porches and patios. They are funny to watch and my indoor only cats will sit for hours watching them run around the patio and chase each other around the plants.
