We feed chipmunks in our backyard... They are so cute! We tried feeding them out of our hands and toes and this is the result! Smile

welllllllllllllllll..... These are backyard chipmunks and they are always in our yard, could they carry a disease like Lyme disease or Rabies, sure... But they don't act sick or crazy as I am sure a chipmunk with a disease would. It is always the same chippy that comes to get food for her/his little ones and today... She brought the little babies out with her to come and eat out of our hands... It is very gentle and once was trying to get a peanut and put my finer in her mouth. She didn't bite and just carefully let go. SO... The cuteness is worth it I suppose Smile

Sorry, guys, forgive my ignorance but What's the difference between a squirrel and a chipmunk? I googled them but the translator gives me the same word for both: "ardilla". Thanks Wink
Anyway,they're adorable!

Squirrels are little larger and can be black, red, brown, or gray. They have a large bushy tail. http://animals.nationalgeographic.com/animals/mammals/squirrel/

Chipmunk are usually smaller and almost always have the same color markings as shown in the pictures above. They have a much shorter tail.
http://animals.nationalgeographic.com/animals/mammals/chipmunk/

They both are normally found in wooded areas.

chipmunks I think are cuter because they smaller....and I don't see them as often as a squirrel.

cute pics Suzy. Smile

We had a family of chipmunks where I work and they were priceless. I looked for them everyday. They would scurry across my feet walking up the side walk. I would make little noises like them so I don't know if they identified the sounds with me but they would come when I did it. Even got to see some baby ones. Then the job in their infinite wisdom decided to do some drainage renovations and subsequently their home near one of the drainage ditches was destroyed. I hope they got away and didn't get eaten by something else. I sure do miss them

I love chipmunks ,too!. We have a cat and unfortunately none are near us but at my parents house all nestled back in the woods, they have so many of the little guys. They don't come close enough to feed though but the raccoons sure do! Mom feeds her kitty on the back porch and in the evening young raccoons think it is feeding time. I think if her glass door was open, they would try to walk right in. affraid

We have a family of crows that nest down the back lane every year and they will sit on our deck railing and talk to us through the window - we can have long conversations. The parents use our yard as a training ground for showing the kids how to find worms and bugs.

Moose wander down the back lane in the winter. Squirrels we've only see run down our fence line or along the powerlines at the back... we've got no food sources in our yard - although my apple tree may be a target this year (I've got 31 apples!)

And there is a pair of Merlins nesting in a tree out back... noisy!! They scream continually each evening. Merlins are small raptors

Being from Michigan, I missed the chipmunks when I lived in Florida and Georgia. They are really cute and I have never really heard of them carrying any kind of diseases, although I'm sure as with any wild animal they can. Lots of people around here hand feed them and like to have them in their yards. They don't seem to be as big of a pest as squirrels. CUTE!!!!

@Shannon - I love moose....at a FAR DISTANCE! Always have to watch for them and deer this time of year. Have not seen any bears...no camping for me this year. This year for some reason I'm seeing alot of rabbits and squirrls. Are you finding a squirel population explosion too???

Haven't seen a single squirrel this year... the mule deer however... Rolling Eyes herds of them on our road... middle of the city, residential.. about 6 a.m. they are all over the place.

I don't live in a zoo... although at times rendeer

The entire city is overrun with ants... there are maybe 30 anthill on our lot alone... tried everything, they just shift their nest over a foot...

And a week ago the grasshoppers hatched... I HATE GRASSHOPPERS. They are dying off now ... driveway is littered with them.

Haha, my husband has been secretly feeding the squirrels peanuts, "even though I told him not to" it all started with my daughter, she was seating on the deck eating a bowl of peanuts and all the sudden I go outside and there were about 30 squirrels in our back yard

Now every time we go outside there are 2 little squirrels that come up and look for peanuts, they are very fun to look at though.

Now chipmunks are a different story, when we moved to our house there was a little family of them, sooooo cute, until......they destroyed my yard, they dug out my plants and they opened huge holes all over the yard.
We still see some but not as many as before and I am so glad Smile
