Eastern Chipmunk

This picture was taken in our back yard on October 13th, 2008. Eastern Chipmunks are slightly larger than Western Chipmunks and breed twice per year rather than only once as does the Western variety. One thing I've noticed about Chipmunks is that they bury seeds all over, but mainly in the garden. Now, are they burying these seeds to eat later or are they really farmers at heart? All I know is we have sunflowers blooming all through the garden and we didn't plant them.
