Very cute critter! Might be a ground squirrel, though. Chipmunks usually have that stripe continuing over their eyes. View here:

That's a ground squirrel. Chipmunks have the stripes all the way through their eyes.

You have no idea how hard it is to admit I was tricked by a freakin squirrel!

No wonder they are so fat. Chipmunks are not fat. HyperMoochers.

OK now I have to go get a telephoto lens. Admit it, I win the squirrel photo contest!

And yes, pest. The humans who feed them, I mean.
