Smarty Pants/ Camera Critters

Peanuts! Did somebody say peanuts?

This smarty pants chipmunk has figured out how to shimmy up a nearby pole and then jump onto this bird feeder.

OOPS! He/she dropped a piece!

I guess it's worth the effort because I got pretty close before the chipmunk looked even remotely worried. Smarty Pants jumped four feet to the ground, scampered off, and waited for me to go away.

Back again!

He's quite the acrobat! Like his cousin Squirrel I presume.

Interesting activity there.

Cute! A friend of mine has chipmunks around her house. She doesn't feed them. Perhaps she should. They ate through the wiring in her car. Bad chipmunks!

Very cute, love the little chippers. I would rather see them on my feeders than the piggy squirrels.

Kate said...

Resourceful and clever little critters. We have them around our house but the dogs keep them away for the feeders.

Judy said...

He's a cute one...I've only seen the squirrels doing this. Love the second shot of him.

They sure are cute and clever little buggers! But they eat more than their fair share of birdseeds....

Those chipmunks are very resourceful aren't they? They sure do love gardens with bird feeders. Great set of photos.

For such a little guy he sure can jump and climb! I've only seen them on the ground or on railings.
