Meet A Chick: Chipmunk

Baby Chipmunk

As you can see, baby Chipmunk earned her name for the distinctive stripes on her body under her wings.  She was such a cute chickie!

Not that she’s not handsome now.  As she’s grown real feathers she’s lost her chipmunk stripes but gained lovely barred wing feathers and a reddish head.  She has beady golden eyes and a head and beak that remind me of a raptor.  I think we’re going to have to come up with a fierce womanly name so she can be in good company with Amelia Earhart,Chipmunk Isabella Bird and Audrey Hepbird.  I was thinking Eleanor Roosevelt seemed about right for her temperament but the Wise and Bearded One believes Chipmunk needs the name of a fierce AND beautiful woman.  Any suggestions out there?  For the time being, she remains our beloved Chipmunk, second in command only to Amelia.
