Chipmunk Family

We recently had the pleasure of meeting some Chipmunk babies. Their Mama brought them out to meet us but they were quite shy. Here are a couple of shots of the Mama with one of her children:

The baby chipmunks first experience with humans probably didn’t go as well as one would hope, later that morning one of the babies fell into a recycling bin and had to be rescued by Caden and I. Normally I wouldn’t have interfered :) but the sad little guy was jumping down in there forever, apparently with no chance of escape so I gave it a hand. Did you know high a chipmunk can jump? Me neither. It was totally unexpected, but thankfully he landed safely. I am assuming he is not one of the newbie’s at the porch feeding center. Poor thing.
