Chipmunks in North Carolina, USA

25 July 2017

A collection of chipmunks in attack mode. I think you will be surprised – and thankful they are so small. In the wild forest of Backyard North there are four “squirrel” species vying for the same food: chipmunks, gray squirrels, red squirrels and flying squirrels!
