I always thought that Chipmunks were Diurnal but this last week I have seen the chipmunk who lives under my deck out and about at 12 and 1 A.M... I have never seen this before but perhaps I was not looking. All the websites I looked at for info say that the Chipmunk is not nocturnal. Well, they are wrong. This little guy is, very much so. Perhaps the people who care about this could take a second look. I have seen him several times so it is not a one off mistake on his part. I even left him a peanut and it was gone in a few seconds. These are not flying squirrels. I know what they look like as we have had those here in the past as well. Please respond

I have had a number of Eastern Bluebirds at my bird feeder in Berwick, Maine for the past few days. Is anyone else spotting them? I didn't think they came north this early in the season, but I realize the storms in more southerly states could be driving them north. I thought they were robins at first until I got out my binoculars and realized they were blue. Look just like the photos in my bird books.

For years I have watched a male oriole fly by, but never saw the nest. This past summer I was outside and the pair were in a tree in my yard. I watched the female twist and build a beautiful golden basket and later feed their young. These were a pair of Orchard Baltimores
