The Travels of Tug 44

Eastern Chipmunk

The Eastern Chipmunk is a cute little rodent, with some snappy-looking racing stripes down its side. They like seeds, berries as well as insects and worms, which they can stuff into their cheek pouches to transport home for later. Their homes are typically extensive tunnel networks.   high-res

If you have a rock garden with flowers and a bird feeder, you are almost guaranteed to have chipmunks too. This one was on Mary Ellen's picnic table right after she filled the bird feeders ... he collected up the spilled seed immediately.   high-res

Eastern Chipmunks groom their fur frequently. When you're that cute, ya have to work at keeping it up. :)   high-res
