I noticed this little Chipmunk in our feeder area the other day and quickly reached for my camera, for although the Chipmunk does not hibernate all through the winter continously it has been a long time since I have see one. This little striped back mammal, a member of the squirrel group, is always delightful to watch as it often fills its internal cheek pouches with seeds to bulging porportions before it scurries off to its under- ground burrow. The Chipmunk is often seen on the ground and it is easily identified by its very visible striped back.
