    The animals got departed by man or killed by man.

    But, ironically, I saw a rabbit in a park over here, and I never see rabbits around here.

    Take care,

    It may be the racoon, thats a real pity, it's lovely to have wildlife so close.

    I completely understand that, it's very furstrating when you can't know for sure why they are gone and can't fix the problem, my heart goes out to you.

    If you are being affected by the drought, is there any water out for them?

    Several theories. I've been in this Centr. FL rural neighborhood for 29 years and have seen some things come and go, others nearly disappear and others just keep on like nothing is wrong.

    Wrens, cardinals and crows seem especially hardy but there seems to be a reduced diversity over what I remember. I used to hear robins call but now except for the annual migration never see a single one. The Squirrel Tree Frog has a distinctive sharp call I would hear after a rain then one year it was just silent. More than a full decade went by then the sound returned. Much of that seemed to coincide with an abandoned swimming pool that was taken over by frogs for better than a year. But I can only guess, and the frequency is nowhere near what it was originally.

    The Banana Spiders were never a favorite but neither were they any threat, moving slowly and keeping to themselves. But again their diminishing numbers in my wooded back lot is unexplained unless the loss of several large trees has made it too brightly lit for their liking. I do still see them in deeper woods, just not as frequently as I once did.

    Humans right now are the single biggest cause of environmental change and the number of species going extinct every week worldwide is now estimated as high as the thousands. What we are doing...

What we are doing to our planet could well already be past repair. Extinction is forever and for the first time in all of earth's history a global Mass Extinction is a human-caused one. I wish I had more encouraging news.
