Eastern Chipmunks Sharing Bird Seed Bowl

The Eastern Chipmunks love to come to our bird feeder. I think they are expecting a long winter which they are well prepared for when hibernating in cold weather as they carry off a lot of seeds in their cheek pouches. I caught this image in time, when they all had their heads up in unison with another another young one about to jump in the seed bowl.
