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.
