Field Rabbit

Birds and Bunnies

We appear to have been established on the local wildlife's foraging patterns, especially as long as we regularly refill the bird feeder. This morning, as I was eating my breakfast, Lisa came in and observed that the birds were getting very noisy as we hadn't fed them yet. She went outside (the birds scattered, of course) and fed them their breakfast.

There are several rabbits around. I'm not sure how many of them. Last year I think I saw four at once. This summer, the most I've seen at one time is two. The thunderstorms we had a few weeks ago caused a quick bloom, and that's good news for the rabbits.

Aside from the smoke, this is a great time of year for sitting out on the front porch in the evening and watching the local urban wildlife.
