Chipmunks are super fast little critters. I managed to get a couple clear shots but most of them were like the photo below. Super wicked fast! This is a Western Chipmunk found in the western part of North America. They eat vegetation, fungi, insects, arthropods, small frogs, worms and bird eggs. Occasionally, they will eat newly hatched birds.
Western Chipmunks breed only once a year and the young will come out of the burrow after about six weeks and will be on their own in another two weeks from there.
We saw this little guy at Red Rock Canyon outside of Las Vegas, Nevada while hiking and birding (of course).
