Full Cheeks

As fall approaches the chipmunks are busy gathering food to store a way for winter and this guy was spending the day trying to empty this bird feeder. Just look at the size of those cheeks! He would fill up and then leave for a few minutes and then return for another load - he definitely won't go hungry this winter.

We saw chipmunks in Banff, and could there ever be a more cute critter.

What a great photo! I did not know chipmunks could climb. I have seen them on the ground only.
Have a wonderful week-end!

They're very busy stocking the larder. Once they're in for the winter in their quarters, you won't see them until spring.

That looks a lot harder than driving to the supermarket. Although the past few days the supermarkets have been rather dangerous what with people struggling to find water and food and batteries, etc. :) Cute shot!

What a cute little guy with his cheeks all puffed out. I hope he has a safe place to spend the winter.
