The chipmunks on the other hand will stay underground all winter and need to store foods in their burrows, which can be quite extensive.
More plentiful than anything else are the wild grapes. This must be a bounty year for this plant! The vines, draped over fences and trees, are bearing large clusters of blue grapes that are the size of blueberries. Many animals eat these including several species of birds. The grapes will help sustain winter wildlife.
