Two golden-mantled ground squirrels and a chipmunk are gorging themselves thanks to messy birds at the bird feeder overhead. While they all look similar, only the chipmunk has stripes on its face. I wish I didn’t know, so I could think of the chipmunks as the babies and the ground squirrels as the adults – much more fun!
