Do you see what I see?

What is that? Over there in the grass?

Want a closer look? Do you know what it is?

A nest of baby bunnies!

I mean brand new baby bunnies!

I didn't get a good count, but it looks like at least 4 or maybe 5 of them!

They're in the sheep pasture. I saw the nest on Friday and it wasn't finished being built yet. This evening when I fed the animals I saw Momma bunny near the nest. I wondered if she was having them. She ran off when she saw me, so I took a closer look. They are really new babies! There was even a piece of afterbirth at the front of the nest. I'm guessing no more than a day old, though I don't know that much about wild rabbits.

This is the second batch of baby bunnies I've found in the sheep pasture! I know wild rabbits can be a pain, but so far they haven't given me any trouble. I enjoy watching them. I'll keep taking pictures of these babies every few days so we can watch them grow!
