Scurrying Here and There…..and Everywhere!
What an active year it was for the ranch chipmunk population! It seems like they could be found everywhere!
Their favorite place to hang out was under the bird feeder near the lodge where they would scavenger seeds dropped to the ground by the finches, grosbeaks, and crossbills. Hanging around the barn wasn’t a bad idea either, as horses tend to “slobber” some of their corn….a hearty treat for chipmunks! Often we would see them scurrying from one rocky area to another, but chipmunks are always alert to enemies flying overhead…or to the dreaded ranch cat, Colter!
