Ohio Americans, Is this true?

I took the boys to the Ontario Science Centre today, in the kids section there is a big window facing a woodland with all sorts of feeders to attract all different species of birds.

I was watching a woodpecker and there was a tourist couple also watching out the window, the lady said "I've never seen one of those before!"

I said "A woodpecker?"

She said, "No black squirrels! We don't have them where we come from"

I asked where, she said she was visiting from Ohio, USA.  I was really surprised, I thought you had the same animals there?

So, my question is, is it true there are no black squirrels in Ohio?

I used to live in Ontario, and saw them all the time. But they also are not in Alberta, where I live now.

No, they're brownish grey east of Cleveland.

I lived in Ohio 33 years and never saw one that color.
