I was going to go work on our sprinkler system this morning but I went outside and saw momma cottontail underneath the bench in our back yard. This means she probably has a kit stashed not too close and not too far away. I decided not to stress her so I’ll be leaving her alone until she leaves on her own.
She’s laying down chilling but very alert.
Other pics of cottontails in our yard. Might be her, might be somebody else, I can’t tell.
They get very still. They can’t fight at all but they can remain still and can run very fast in a herky jerky manner.
