Eastern chipmunks

I enjoy seeing chipmunks scamper around the Fran Hanson Discovery Center and Bob Campbell Geology Museum.

They're exceptionally active now, as they're storing up their winter food caches. Their numbers seem to be stable now, as the feral cat that used to hang around isn't here anymore.

Watch for them in your neighborhood!

Amazing pictures! do you take all of these? IT's so hard to catch wildlife posing... before you snap they've moved or are gone...

I do take most of my own pictures, but this one is a royalty-free clipart photo, downloaded years ago for program use!

It is definitely challenging to get good wildlife photos.
