… homeowner’s front lawn was scrutinized by your roving reporter a week or so ago. Just like I followed the doin’s at the robin’s nest, I’ve been scoping out this cavernous hole every time I walk by. Without trespassing on the property, I’ve peered into this hole from afar, zooming in with the camera to see if there was any life in there, but I’m no further ahead.
From the get-go I figured it belonged to Mama bunny and a litter of babies (also known as “kits” which is short for kittens) and I supposed that little family lived at the end of the dark hole. I Googled “images of rabbit burrows” to determine if a rabbit burrow looked like this – sure enough I was right.
The next day, the realization that my Google research went to waste occurred when I glanced at the burrow and a huge rabbit was sitting nearby in the front yard.
So the question arose: were her babies in the burrow already, or was she preparing for their birth? She didn’t clue me in at all, and, just as soon as I stepped in a little closer to take her photo, of course that fleet-footed bunny bolted. Pouf … she was gone after flashing her powder puff tail at me.
I’ve continued to steal a glance every time I pass by, hoping to catch sight of some cute baby bunnies to share here but no luck let.
Meanwhile, I was quick like a bunny this morning. I walked my five miles and was back home in record time, likely since the pale sun and coolish weather gave me the energy to keep hopping along the trail much like the Energizer Bunny.
