July 11, 2015. We have a new daily visitor to our yard, a little chipmunk. He follows the same route to the bird feeder dozens of times every day, passing under and over the furniture on the patio, and running along the pool deck. It makes no difference to him if we are sitting there. He gives us a glance and then is on his way. Cheeks full the chipmunk gets ready to make his escape, taking his haul back to the nest in my neighbour's yard.
