When I was growing up in Kentucky I always had a ton of fun watching the chipmunks grabbing bird seed that had spilled from the feeders. These little guys are the smallest member of the squirrel family and share a lot of behaviors with their larger cousins, the grey and red squirrels.
Tree squirrels do not hibernate to get through the winter and instead rely upon stored food to get through the winter. However, most chipmunks do hibernate which made me wonder if they go through the trouble of storing up winter food caches.
So, the question of the day is, “Do chipmunks bury nuts?”
