"I think the oddest thing was no squirrels, no chipmunks, no birds, and all you could hear is the wind."

I grew up in the country and what you are describing is familiar. Country critters are much more wary of humans than their urban cousins. Squirrels and chipmunks try to stay hidden and birds will be less active when you're around. When I was young it used to amaze me to go to a more urban area or a campground where the animals were used to people. They would practically eat out of my hand! They never let us get that close at home in the country. But, if you sit quietly in the country woods for a while, they come to life. The animals come out of hiding and you might be surprised to find how plentiful they are.
