For one of our lunches, we had a floor show as well as food. Can you find the entertainer? Yup it was a chipmunk.
He had no sense at all that humans were scary and came right over and nosed around our packs. We were naughty to feed him (it teaches wildlife that humans mean food and turns them into camp pests). But we were on a piece of little used trail and figured that the likelihood that another camper would eat at that same spot in this chipmunk's lifetime was pretty low!
So, we gave him a couple of pieces of our broccoli salad. He actually seemed to like the dressing on it the best, but when another chippy showed up and tried to steal it, he let that one know "what for." It was great entertainment!
