I think we came from here:

The thread "Holes in yard" in Ask a Question forum

@goblegirl1, please correct me if I'm wrong.

You might have called voles by a different name. They are stockier and bigger than a mouse but with short tails. They look a little like hamsters without stripes. We always called them 'field mice'

Voles are omnivores but favor the roots and underground shoots of plants that they like.
How about chipmunks? I have them in my yard in Michigan making holes but not any raised burrows or tunnels. They are omnivores too.
Moles for the most part are carnivores eating insects, grubs, worms, larvae and other assorted animal protein. Moles leave raised tunnels or burrows in the soil.
