Smile Chippie...under our deck

We noticed our cats going a little frantic by the patio-door and we saw this little guy/girl filling his cheeks.
We suspect he/she has a home under our deck.We don't normally get Chipmunks and he's soooo cute.
The shadow in the pick,is Vinnies reflection in the patiodoor,he was dying to get out there

Are they endangered? They're so cute I think I'd swap you our koala for them.

... Wouldn't that be a sight? Look up into a big ol' Scots Pine and see a Koala hanging out!?

I don't know Goldfields that they been officially labelled as endangered in the GTA. They have become extremely rare in urban settings as they are increasingly being driven out by squirrels. Chico would know far more than I on this subject.

I *think* the black squirrels, the more aggressive, are the problem as the browns' population are also waning. In addition, with more and more large urban centres like the GTA using predator birds to control pigeon populations, the little guys like chipmunks and voles become "collateral damage".

We have a few Chippies around Chico.....I love those little guys. In Fall they pack their little chops full from the bird feeders and scurry off into their hole and return for more

Our chipmunks are getting very active again, too, chico! They're such friendly lil guys!

I think Vinnie and Brier would get along well--Brier is fascinated by the chippies, too!
