On Wednesday, during this glorious weather we have been having here in Connecticut, I was out in the backyard surveying all the work to be done and also feeding the birds / squirrels when out of the corner of my eye, I spotted a movement. Pivoting quickly to my left, I spotted the dearest little chipmunk scooting across the yard with a peanut in its mouth. Up the drainpipe it went. I find this unusual because in the 25 years we have lived here, I have never seen a chipmunk. I can only hope it has a large family and that I see it and them again soon. Welcome chipmunk.
Thanks Aunt Holly! We at beaverlikemammals.com join you in hoping that an entire chipmunk family has moved into your backyard.
