This past summer, my husband John developed a special bond with one particular chipmunk.  He  must have gotten into a fight with another animal as he had a nasty gash across the side of his body.  John called him Alvin and Alvin would follow him throughout our property as he was working.  I called him Chubby Cheeks as he loved to stuff his cheek pouches with the peanuts and almonds John carried and gave him as he was working outside. And yes the wound began to heal.

My 'CHUBBY CHEEKS' drawing pays homage to Alvin and the joy he brought into our lives with his daily presence.

Chipmunks / family Sciuridae need about 15 hours of sleep per day.

Weighing in at 1 to 5 ounces, chipmunks are among the smallest member of the squirrel family.

There are 25 species of chipmunks - 24 range from Canada to Mexico across a variety of terrains from forests to deserts to suburban neighborhoods.
Only one species, the Siberian chipmunk, makes its home outside North America.

Chipmunks have a lot of food sources. They are not picky eaters and spend a lot of time searching for their next meal, including at bird feeders.  They are omnivores and love nuts, berries, seeds, mushrooms, insects, frogs, lizards, baby birds, and bird eggs. During late summer and fall, they begin carrying extra food back to their burrow in their ample cheek pouches (which can hold a stash three times the size of their head). This foraging also benefits the larger ecosystem — chipmunks spread seeds and important mycorrhizal fungi that live around tree roots, ensuring they thrive.

Chipmunks do have a sizable vocal repertoire, announcing everything from territorial claims to terror over nearby predators. Vocalizations include chips, chucks, and trilling alarm calls. In fact, chipmunks are so talkative, and their high-pitched communications are so ubiquitous, many people mistake them for bird calls.
