Chipmunk (Tamias striatus)
This little creature is a member of the squirrel family and is easily recognized by the stripes on its back; it has 5 dark stripes and 2 light or white stripes. Chipmunks are frequently in our feeder area and yesterday we counted three. They have handy little cheek pouches which allows them to gather up large amounts of food to carry away.
