Bunnie gauge

The building I work in is rather far out in the middle of nothing. The nearest other building is about a mile away across open desert. Because of this we seem to get a lot of animals around the place. Sitting in the upstairs conference room I look out over the front parking lot to a big empty field. I usually see rabbits, chipmunks and quail. Once in a while a coyote wanders through, but they are usually night stalkers that sleep during the day. Some people have seen rattlesnakes near the doors as well.

A family of rabbits comes by to nibble the grass each morning, hanging around out there until about noon. They don’t seem too scared of the people walking by, but do run away if you stop or get too close. I’m trying to gauge what kind of day it will be based on the number of rabbits that are out there when I come in. Today was a one bunnie morning, some days have more than others.
Two bunnie morning


Three bunnie morning


Four bunnie morning


Haven’t seen more than that all gathered together, but others are hopping around.

We get wild turkey wandering through our parking lot at the office occasionally. There are bald eagles nesting near us as well, and plenty of hawks. I don't think a bunny convention like that would survive the hawks for too long...

Sweet!

I have a baby bunny hiding in the tall grass in my backyard.

gee, it's Easter already? Haha.

How lovely to have a bunny or six running around your yard. Some of the places we take the caravan have rabbits running around. Dog loves to watch them but he doesn't chase (yet...) xx

we have those type of bunnies in Arizona, I gotta say they are not nearly as cute and cuddle as the ones you see in more four season locations, like the Candbury rabbit.

I used to see cottontails all the time in Las Vegas growing up...with all the new construction and building out here, I see 'em less and less.

We get bunnies on the grass verges around the car park at my office, which is on a business park at the edge of Edinburgh. We also have oystercatchers (not sure if you get them in the US) nesting up on the flat roof. But then Edinburgh has plenty of urban wildlife (about ten years ago I saw a roe deer about half a mile from our house in one of the less built-up parts around a golf course).
