The reflecting pool.

Eastern chipmunk drinking at the pond. Water flow was slow, allowing for a reflection, as the filter was partially blocked by leaves.

Tamias striatus
Males will compete for a female, and may mate with several females during one breeding season. Females give birth after 30 days of pregnancy, and the female will rear (raise and looking after) the young without the males help. Litter size ranges from 3-6 young, and females will usually only produce one litter a year. Baby chipmunks are naked and blind at birth and require a lot of attention from their mothers. By the time baby chipmunks are one month old, they look like adults and will start to leave the burrow to find food (forage).
