Eastern Chipmunk

This little sweetie lives in a hole underneath the landscape ties right outside the door. There is a birdfeeder outside our kitchen window with a rope attached for him to climb. He provides endless entertainment for our cats as they watch him, from the kitchen sink, stuffing his cheeks to capacity with seeds to bring home for later dining.

Hi: I just love chipmunks. We had three visit our campground this past week. I think they were after the crumbs my kids left behind. We saw bald eagles and even a bear. the bear was not in camp but a long ways away.
