We've lived here for 6 years now and this is the first time ever I've seen a chipmunk in Hamilton!
He was such a cute trusting little fellow. I spotted him shuffling through the gravel at a nearby house and just stood, watching him busily looking for food. He was quite inquisitive and came all the way to the edge of the sidewalk, sat back on his haunches and looked up at me expectantly. That tells me this little fellow's been hand fed.
Considering we are surrounded by squirrels with the park nearby, I hope this little fellow survives since squirrels normally do not like chipmunks and will kill them.
I'll try to see if he's there again tomorrow and try to snap a few photos of him. He is quite the cutie.
