Chipmunk

Yesterday afternoon I walked outside my back door and saw a chipmunk just a few feet from my deck. It was the first opportunity I have had to photograph a chipmunk since moving to Holyrood 26 years ago.

These cute little animals are similar to squirrels but tend to live on the ground. They are not native to the island of Newfoundland. They were introduced to the Butterpot Park area around 40 years ago and have been around Holyrood since I moved here. Apparently they have not adapted well and are not widespread.

I created a Chipmunk Gallery at:
