Gray-collared Chipmunk

Neotamias cinereicollis

Habitat:

Pine forest

Notes:

This is a lifer for me. They are only found across the central portions of AZ and NM; this is a very restricted range for a chipmunk. Ava T-B would be happy to hear that this is the first of this species on PN.

Yes. The only other in the area is a Cliff Chipmunk. It does not have the well defined stripes on the back like this one.

So you are sure that it is the gray-collared chipmunk?

I think this is a gray-collared chipmunk or a least chipmunk, but I am not certain.
