Description

I saw this little guy out on my back patio playing in our "fire wood" (a bunch of limbs and twigs).
I tried to get a better photo of him, but he ran off when I opened the storm door.
He seemed to be cracking open a nut of some sort.
He looked like an average sized chipmunk. He was tan, with white and dark brown stripes.

Description from Wikipedia

The eastern chipmunk (Tamias (Tamias) striatus) is a chipmunk species found in eastern North America. It is the sole living member of the chipmunk subgenus Tamias, sometimes recognised as a separate genus. Its name comes from the Odawa (Ottawa) word ajidamoonh or the Ojibwe word ajidamoo, which translates literally as "one who descends trees headlong."
