We have our bird feeder and treats for the birds set up just outside our bay window in the family room. We figure that the birds have to earn their food by entertaining us. The seed bell we had hanging outside had fallen down and I noticed someone besides the birds was enjoying it.
I was able to open the window and take the chipmunks picture without scaring them away.
Before long the three critters were joined by a sibling.
As I continued to take photos, the mom chipmunk joined her offspring.
