Chipmunks













Chipmunks

I am sharing photos of wildlife I photographed in my yard.  Another animal that was introduced in the 1960s was the eastern chipmunk.  They were released in Butterpot Park, around 3 miles from here, but haven't been as successful as the red squirrel.  IN fact, I heard a wildlife biologist state on radio that we don't have chipmunks on the island.  However, we have had them around here for many years.

Usually, I see them in early spring, but not all summer.  There were a couple here last week, but I haven't seen them since.  Cats tend to catch chipmunks easier than squirrels, so the cats around here are probably keeping the population down.

Feel free to share with family and friends.
