We have been blessed (?) hereabouts with a bunch o’ bunnies, thanks to our resident Eastern Cottontail (Sylvilagus floridanus) rabbit, Doonifer. The trusting Doon has produced four wee kits, & when I say ‘wee’, I mean ‘WEE’. Oui, oui. We’ve been observing baby rabbits all our lives, but these may just be the smallest we’ve ever seen. When we first saw them in the myrtle right beside our back door (that door where all the squirrels gather for various nefarious peanut-related purposes) last Sunday (2 June 2013), they weren’t much more than four inches long, & their little ears topped out at about three-quarters of an inch. I did get a few shots, but for the most part, they were hiding (& rummaging) in the thick green myrtle, or if they were visible, they were in constant motion. We think the actual nest is under our front porch… Mother Doon hovers, but on Wednesday last, she went back to the thicket at the back of our property & left the little leapers to themselves. They bounced around in the driveway, in the myrtle & in the lilies-of-the-valley ~ very little fear, certainly not of us, & considerable curiosity about our other denizens including adult & young gray squirrels, herky-jerky red squirrels, big Blue Jays, chipmunks, etc. They all co-exist wonderfully, & the little rabbits don’t vie for peanuts, so they’re welcome, you might say…. Such a menagerie.
