I believe this is one of Eleanor's offspring and it's taken over her burrow. Although you can't tell on this image, it only has half of a tail. It's still not used to us and I have to stay back and lay down quietly before it takes any of our offerings. It has started foraging from dawn until dusk every day. It's the sweetest little chipmunk and I believe we will become friends :)

We are not sure whether it's male or female so we have named it Taylor (unisex name).

Have a fantastic weekend.
