My new chipmunk friend is much more timid than my previous one. Maybe that’s what got him killed. This one runs off at almost the smallest sound. But he’s starting to come around and has gotten more used to me being near when he eats.
I am a big fan of the original Bladerunner movie from the 80s. When the sequel came out in2017 I really wanted to see it. But somehow I never got around to seeing it in theaters. I now wish I had. It was nice on my tv but it would have been amazing on a big screen with sound. The movie is a visual and auditory masterpiece.
I kinda expected that I wouldn’t be chipmunkless long after the passing of Hanz. There are lots of chipmunks around here and near my patio is prime real estate. It has a constant supply of food.
Within about 5 days of Hanz going to the giant back patio in the sky, another chipmunk started coming around. The newcomer is much more timid than than Hanz was. He tends to run away at almost nay sound.
I have also been getting visits from a pair of cardinals that show up around sundown to eat up the leftovers from the chipmunk. It’s a boy and girl cardinal so I assume they are on a date.
I hadn’t seen Hanz for a couple of days. His food sat mostly untouched. I went out on the third day and that’s when I noticed the smell 🙁 I looked for his little body so I could give him a proper burial but I never found him.
No pic for this one. I was wandering around in the back yard and saw some weeds coming up in the yard. It hasn’t rained forever so the grass hasn’t been growing so the only thing green out there are weeds. That’s fine be me. Means I don’t have to mow. I noticed the top of the weeds had been chewed off by something. It seemed to tall to be one of the bunnies. In the softened dirt dug up by a mole I found a few hoof prints. Deer hoof prints. I must have had a large visitor during the night. I’ve taken to looking out my window if I get up at night and seeing if I can see anything. Nothing yet.
