Look fast! Visitors who pass through the narrow openings in the garden gate don’t linger. Such was the case when tiny Townsend squeezed into the yard on a cool winter afternoon.
After days of scavenging for seeds, the aroma of fresh peanuts beckoned the little fellow. Without hesitation a peanut was selected and hugged close.Townsend knew what to do as he hoisted the nut to his lips.Peanut clamped in tight, the chipmunk readied for a lightning-fast retreat. Eyes aimed at the narrow exit, his body twisted, released like a spring, and popped into action.
What will this visitor do? Will he use the narrow escape, or find another way out?
