Eastern Chipmunk

chipmunk

The eastern chipmunk is a common sight in deciduous forests, parks, and backyards throughout Virginia. They are small, fast-moving, and easily recognized by the dark and light striping down their backs.

Recorded activity in the James River Park

Caught for a split second in only one video, this chipmunk moves fast. Chipmunks are found throughout the Park System, in the woods, riparian areas and on the islands, like this one.
