Chippy

By IamDora
Chipmunk or ground squirrel. Chippies live in burrows in the ground and spend their whole summer gathering food. In the winter they semi-hibernate, waking up from time to time and replenishing their body fat from their stash of seeds and nuts. Unlike tree squirrels, they are not destructive; they don't winter in closed-up houses, chew up mattresses and gnaw through electric wires.

This guy was happy to gather up the seeds, etc that fell from the bird feeder, but he'd get a handful of his own as well. He became so friendly he could be hand feed and it was not uncommon to have a card game interrupted when he scurried across the picnic table where we were playing.

During warmer weather I would take. my lunch to a shady part of my private garden---and toss bits here and there----The Chippie would soon come by and snatch his prize--- hard to get a good shot of the quick little fellow tho!
