Do you have these where you live? Either we have one extremely active chipmunk, or we have a zillion, because everywhere I look outside is a hole in the ground.
I find peanuts stored in my fertilizer bags in my garage, and if someone happens to leave the storm door on my front door just slightly ajar, they’ll store peanuts in that gap too! It’s crazy!
Now my son, the patron saint of the animal world, has taken to feeding them. He has bird seed on a frisbee under a tree, and the chipmunk will run to the frisbee and fill his cheeks to the absolute bursting point. He then scampers off to store it.
Within 2 minutes, he’s back again for the next cheek full of seeds. This goes on all day long.
I can’t bear to tell my son to stop feeding them, but can you imagine how healthy those babies are gonna be? And their babies…and their babies…and their babies… all of which need new holes….
