Townsend's chipmunk

Neotamias townsendii


Townsend's Chipmunks are omnivorous, eating a variety of plants and insects and even birds' eggs. This one has a mouth full of green plants - so I'm not sure if this is food or nest building materials. It's home was under the stump of an upturned tree, which it ran into and never came back out.


Spotted at the edge of a forest at the Mima Mounds Preserve.
