“The eastern chipmunk is a loner, active during the daylight hours,1 and lives in a burrow of extensive tunnels, well-hidden entrances, and chambers for sleeping, nesting, and storing large quantities of food. In winter, the chipmunk retires to its burrow, enters a state of torpor, but wakens frequently to move about underground or to eat from its stores. It vocalizes with bird-like chirps, chips, chucks, and squeaks. Predators include hawks and foxes but its most formidable enemy is the weasel, which will pursue the chipmunk into the innermost reaches of its burrow.” Wikipedia
