Eastern Chipmunk - Tamias striatus My mom was taking a break from filling her birdfeeders and she had left out the big bowl of birdseed that she uses to fill them. It didn&#039;t take the local chipmunks long to find the bowl on her deck. They took turns stuffing their cheeks, providing us with some much needed comic relief.<br />

The eastern chipmunk is a chipmunk species found in eastern North America. It is the sole living member of the chipmunk subgenus ''Tamias'', sometimes recognised as a separate genus. Its name comes from the Odawa word ''ajidamoonh'' or the Ojibwe word ''ajidamoo'', which translates literally as "one who descends trees headlong."
