We were surprised to find chipmunks in just a few of our back-yard cameras in the Raleigh area. Given that chipmunks are so common in other urban areas, why are they so spotty in their distribution here? We are at the edge of their range, so perhaps the same factors that affect their distribution within the Triangle area also keep them out of the Coastal Plain.
Lets find out – tell us where you have seen chipmunks using this form and we’ll see if we can spot a pattern.
