I noticed that I am only having one of my chipmunk friends eating the food. This made me do a search on chipmunk social structure to see if they stay in groups. They do not.
I had always assumed the two smaller chipmunks, Franz and Franz, were the children and Hanz was the mother. Maybe I was right and two of them have scampered off to other areas. Though I thought they would want to stay around a sure source of food. I can’t actually tell which one has stayed since the only way I told them apart was by their sizes and behavior relative to each other.
Maybe if I stop feeding them there won’t be so many of them.
Fireworks were officially canceled this year for July 4th. Nobody told my neighbors. Sounded like I was in a warzone for three days straight.
The World Turn Pink
I woke up confused at 5:17 in the morning. The world was pink. A warm pink glow was coming through the window. I looked out the window and saw the sky infused with pink. I’ve pink during sunrises and sunsets but I had never seen the whole sky like that. The sunrise reflected off the the bottom of an incoming storm. Soon the light faded and the rain poured down.
It’s Hanz and Franz and Franz
Turns out there are three chipmunks. One of them is just very timid and seems not to be liked by the other two. They chase him off when they are eating. He only comes out when they have left. I did see all three of them at one time. If I had known there were three I would have called them, Larry and Darryl and Darryl.
