A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, as the old proverb goes. The father walked outside to see his two cute kids having fun in the yard.
The two children clambered up on his extended hand and began playing with the stunned guy as if he were a toy.
Like any young animals, baby chipmunks are playful and full of life.
Female chipmunks spend around 1.5 months caring for their young, often leaving before sunrise to find food.
Unlike young chipmunks, who usually avoid strangers, these two were eager to learn more about their new companion.
Within seconds after picking them up, a child climbed up onto his arm.
Please do not bother these critters if you find them in your yard; instead, return them to their nest and leave them there. Mother will return to them if she is still alive when you go.
Thankfully, he was aware of what needed to be done. But there was one little catch. The man gently returned the inquisitive young bird to its nest.
