Chipmunk in Sutton Massachusetts
The Eastern Chipmunk, or Tamias striatus, lives in the eastern half of the US and up through Canada. A common sight while birding, chipmunks are quite friendly and are quite happy with humans nearby.
Chimpunks can even sound like a bird! They make a chip-chip-chip light call which can easily be mistaken for the call of a small bird.
These next two photos were taken in September at Purgatory Chasm. See how his little cheeks are full, gathering up nuts?
