Yet another new visitor to the backyard

Sher and I were enjoying sitting on the swing enjoying the multitude of birds feeding at our feeders. We were seeing Cardinals, robins, sparrows, wrens, Grackles, Blue Jays, starlings,Β  doves. and nuthatches. Turkey vultures were soaring on thermals overhead, and we even saw a couple of chimney swifts, the cigar with wings insect catchers. Squirrels were chasing each other up and down and around trees.

There he is, in the center of the shot.

Look closely, you can see chipmunk looking out of the wishing well at us/you

Then out of the corner of her eye, Sher spotted movement. She poked me and pointed. There running across the yard and not 6 feet away was a cute little chipmunk. We have never seen one in our yard since we moved here. The cute little guy romped around for awhile checking out the tree, wishing well and the whole area. He acted like this was his first time in our yard.

    • The biggest difference is size. squirrels are so much larger than chipmunks. Squirrels have bushy tails chipmunks have small skinny tails. The colors are also different. We have posted pictures of squirrels. Thanks for asking.
