I hadn't seen a squirrel all winter, yesterday a beautiful red one sat on my stone wall. Scared by the cats before I could snap hi/her pic:-(
Really? We see squirrels quite often during the winter, but never chipmunks. I'm not sure why that is. I know that squirrels only semi-hibernate (there's a term for that I can't remember). So maybe chipmunks truly hibernate? I don't know.
