STOPS ALONG THE WAY

RABBIT RE-DO* (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Cottontail -1

I came across this well-fed rabbit as it grazed along the footpath. It didn’t follow typical rabbit behaviour when startled by people – it didn’t freeze or bolt. It just continued feeding and then stopped and looked at us (we were never further than seven to eight feet away). We figured it must have been a young rabbit and had not learned to fear people or predators yet. This reserve has a fair number of hawks and other raptors, I hope it learns that lesson soon!

* After some useful information from a fellow blogger, I no longer believe this rabbit is a cottontail (see my exchange with Eliza Waters in comments)

  4. Such a cutie – it may not be a cottontail. It looks like a domestic, possibly a cross? An escapee, perhaps? That would explain its lack of fear of humans.
