This little chippy is from an army of hundreds who show up on a daily basis to tell me what I ought to be doing around my property. Next to the Blue jay, they’re one of the bossiest bunch of critters in the woods. They’re cute as a button, but they chitter relentlessly at the dogs and me as we go about our daily routine.
I used to have a wonderful barn cat who kept the local chipmunk population trimmed down to a dull roar. But I lost Mac to old age a while back, and I’ve been over-run by the little varmints ever since. I keep hoping a stray cat will show up and decide to call this home, but so far that hasn’t happened. The minute I go out and adopt a cat another one will appear, so I’ve been holding off.
For now I guess I’ll just have to put up with the little chatter boxes!
