| Durango Chipmunks are common in moist pine-oak forests in the Sierra Madre, and less abundant in drier woodland. Rocks, logs, and litter provide cover for their daytime activities. They sometimes use rotting piles of cut timber as dens. They are known to feed on corn, acorns, and pine nuts. Their vocalizations include both "chuck" and "trill" calls.
