I miss the chipmunks! Usually by this time of year, we are being treated to the antics of these little guys as they tear across the yard grabbing our birdseed and terrorizing the other larger animals. They are so adorable that they bring smiles to even the most sour of sourpusses. However this year they are missing in action. According to Ron Hipfner in a letter to the editor, Frontenac News, April 12, the chipmunk population may have been felled by a disease this winter. I was hoping our Verona chipmunks would have escaped this plight but so far no sightings. So I am plugging for these little tykes and hope they recover quickly and are back to their old selves - eating my flowers and dominating the yard once more.
