The flying chipmunkPosted: July 25, 2012

 By Larry Halverson/Friends of Kootenay

You’ve heard of flying squirrels but what about ‘flying” chipmunks?’ Kootenay National Park’s Wildlife Biologist, Alan Dibb, managed to capture this mid air action.

Chipmunks are nimble climbers and are usually seen in flashing moments as they move about in jerky spurts. They seem like “nervous” critters, for even when they are standing still their tails are constantly twitching.
