This is a neighbor of mine, in fact he lives with his mate under my back shed. He has it pretty good with the pick of the seeds from my bird feeders, and some quick to reach hidey holes when the local cats venture by.

I occasionally see him stick his head out on a sunny winter day but they are normally in a state of torpor, reduced activity but not a true hibernation.

Before winter arrives, they keep us amused by filling their cheeks with seeds and storing them in their burrows.
