Photo: Townsend’s chipmunk feasts on a seed

17 of 1390

Our photo of the day comes from Jackson County, Oregon.

In the fall, Townsend’s chipmunks live on acorns, huckleberries, maple seeds, thistle seeds, grain seeds, grass, roots, and conifer seeds – what a nice feast! They are also shy and elusive, making this shot by photographer Mark Heatherington all the more special.
