A poor choice for this Eastern Chipmunk.
In yet another sign that spring is upon us, chipmunks have become active about the yard.
Now, it is true that chipmunks will wake up and wander out during winter if the temperatures get high enough. And we did see a few about in February. But they now appear awake for good.
This poor individual is peaking out from behind the algae mats coating the waterfall in our fish pond. Said waterfall is still shutdown for the winter. However, water will soon be following down these green coated rocks.
And chippy will need some new digs.
