I'm told you can solve the problem of their being dug up by putting a layer of chicken wire over the bulbs once planted. I don't have squirrels here. No grey ones anyway and there's pasture between me and the woods where the red ones live so no access to my garden.
The only bird problem I have is them nicking the blueberries just before they're ripe for human picking so i'm planning to net them this year. After several years of winter damage reducing stems and fruiting power, I gave them a wind barrier for this winter and that means I have no dead and frozen stems this year so I'm hoping for a good crop.
