This was right before I brought the containers in last night,and the bowl was almost empty.... During the day I went out three times to refill seeds in the dish so the birds will have something to eat... However a chipmunk family hangs around for most of the day thinking whatever is there is for them to receive:-) This was one of the younger ones of the clan.. I have to admit they are cute even if they are known to carry off a lot of the seeds to store in reserve for when they hibernate over the winter.. I think they are expecting a long cold winter..The Hairy Woodpecker prefers suet over seeds so he could care less as long as they aren't in competition with each other for the seed bowl. I used flash through the window at an angle as it was beginning to get dark ... glad it didn't leave a glare light spot on the glass and both chipmunk and woodpecker are sharply focused.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!

    Thank you Miah for your comment...Although it might resemble a squirrel, the Eastern chipmunks are much tinier in size... They hibernate in the winter time here because they are so small and can't withstand the cold weather...While the squirrels will get out in deep snow ..
