For a long time, I’ve had just one chipmunk on the deck, but recently, there have been two. My guess is that if there are two, there are probably a lot more. I just would appreciate that they not all gather together on my deck. I remember when we had a lot of chipmunks and they would gather in a pack and chitter chatter at us as we got out of the car. Then the bobcats came and for a while, we had no chipmunks. Eaten by the bobcats.
These are two different chipmunks, Can you see the difference? The one with the dark strip up near his head is, I think, the male and the other is the female.
