Artist's Description

As Eastern Chipmunks (Tamias striatus_) of all stripes & colors seem to be popular these days, I’ll add my tiny, be-pouched two cents.
This lady has a few battle scars (especially on her back), & plenty of audacity. She interacts with the Gray squirrels, & occasionally runs at the younger Grays, who have been known to drop peanuts when surprised. The older squirrels, Red & Gray, co-exist with the chips without much of any ado. This girl lives in the back shed, under the back shed, all around the back shed, & I’ve tried hard to entice her to dip her tail in the paint can & give the back shed a little touch-up. So far, though she does work for peanuts when she works, she doesn’t work. She is very tame & is not above coming into the house for a perambulation around the ground floor. She could wreak havoc if left to her own devices, so we do not encourage this behavior. She never gets upset, unlike most of her counterparts.
This wiki
chipmunk article on T. striatus mentions burrows & holes & entrances & storage units & torpor, but it does not mention our back shed.
This would be ‘interacting’.
