Spending time in the woodland it is hard not to notice the chatter of chipmunks. They range in color from gray to red. Chipmunks lives underground. They prefor to burrow near a rock, log or other object. The chipmunk will continue to dig for it's entire life. Burrows have been found over thirty feet long. Chipmunks feed on insects, nuts, seeds, berries and grain, which they stuff into their generous cheek pouches and carry to their burrow or nest to store. Chipmunks hibernate, but instead of storing fat, they periodically dip into their cache of nuts and seeds throughout the winter.
