Every Spring and Summer morning I can remember waking up to the worlds most annoying bird. My sister and I called it the “burrito bird.” I don’t know if the bird was singing or sending out a mating call but it sure was irritating. We called it the burrito bird because it sounded like it was saying Burrito, Burrito, Burrito in it’s bird chirps. Not something we looked forward too.
Something I do look forward to? Chippy.
A not-so-creative name for a chipmunk, but a name. Chippy will scurry by my window everyday at work. S/he sits by a small bush and finds something to chew on. Then looks around for about 5 minutes and its off to the next bush.

***UPDATE*** Chippy is actually a thirteen-striped ground squirrel, not a chipmunk! Thanks, Greg!
