Yesterday, and for the first time this year, a Chipmunk visited our deck. I was happy, it was as if an old friend had come to call. I was especially happy because we did have a friend staying overnight, and she and I watched its antics together before she left in the morning. Our little Chipmunk entertained both of us. He was just at the other side of the screen door and we had the glass door open. Chippy was obviously aware we were there, but paying us no mind as we watched all the scurrying back and forth and stuffing those peanuts into its mouth. The process was repeated many times and there should be quite a store of peanuts in the burrow by now.
I am always amazed how large those cheek pouches are.
He tried both sides for a better fit.
Dear little thing!
