The Chipmunks

It is said that the chipmunks used to live predominantly on Chipmunk Mountain before all the building started, then subsequently moved down to the coast. No matter what, they are extremely tame and scuttle up to you as you walk by in search of food and drink.


We have found that they especially enjoy grapes, which can be a good source of liquid as well as nourishment for them. Generally we have found that they like sunflower seeds, but all sorts of food have been offered by passers by.

The months of March/April are good as the baby chipmunks are in tow, although they are not as tame as their parents.


It is also a good idea to put a little bit of water down for them in the hot weather as the ground dries out. They have been known to drink lemonade when that was all that was on offer.
