Somewhere in Canada… Chubby Chipmunk Cheeks

April 8, 2016 — 2 Comments

During one of my travels last Summer through British Columbia, Canada, I was very lucky to be visited by a couple of chipmunks at a roadside stop in the mountains. They actually came to the car door and, for a moment, I thought they were going to hop inside. For privacy sake of the chipmunks, I won’t reveal the location, but let’s just say it was somewhere in the southern half of the province. I have never seen such friendly chipmunks before, but I have a feeling that if I didn’t have sunflower seeds and acorns, they may not have stayed around.

Please bear with me with my captions, and if you have a better one, you can post it in the comments below. I have also posted my YouTube video from the same visit and please share if you like it. The video appears about half way down this post. Now, here is “Somewhere in Canada… Chubby Chipmunk Cheeks.”


Hello. Is that acorn for me?

Okay, back for a little more sunflower seed. Did you know they are high in copper and vitamin E?

  1. Wonderful picture – wonderful animals – said ‘hello’ to them about 10 years ago in the same neck of the woods….had not realized that they were quite so tiny – having recalled them from Disney films many years earlier.

    Gorgeous part of the world – fell in love with Canada – must return !
