Baby Bunny Nest ~ An Enchanting Discovery!

Look what we uncovered while working at a client’s garden ~

Baby rabbits are called kits or kittens and these look like they are Eastern Cottontails, the most common and widespread species of rabbits in North America.

In the future if I accidentally come upon a similar looking nest, I think I would leave it undisturbed. We were very startled by the sight of the baby wild rabbits after pulling away leaves and the downy soft “lid,” or protective covering, and they very nearly were almost raked!

  1. Kim once again a great observation and very keen eye for surroundings and nature they when nesting will stay very still like a pheasant and only move at the very last minute if threatened. The mother or father may run to draw away also – domesticated rabbits a bit different not as hyper vigilant as those out in nature.

    Great shots thanks! 🙂 Dave & Kim 🙂
