Dead in a tree
Possibly killed by a cat
Common yard squirrel in rural area of Canandaigua, New York. Unlike in the western US, there's only one chipmunk species to identify here.
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."
