The chipmunks were out and bouncing around on Tuesday the 27th – almost exactly the same as last year, which was the 29th. Amazing to me, since it was so warm the last week and a half – thought they’d wake up earlier.
Lots of times they literally bounce across the grass and the garden – such funny little guys. Even when they try to slip around and not be obvious, those little tails straight up in the air give them away every time. They live in the stone walls all around here, with lots of potential get-away spots as needed.
They manage their lives with the bigger squirrels and all the suddenly-landing birds very well – so quick! And it’s fun to watch them stuff peanuts in their cheeks before taking off at hyper speed.
A lot of bang for the entertainment buck, chipmunks.
Happy Spring, Every One!
