Found baby bunnies in your backyard?

Springtime Baby Bunnies
Now is the time of year when it is not uncommon to find nests of baby bunnies without their mommas

Now is the time of year when it is not uncommon to find nests of baby bunnies without their mommas.  Don’t be fooled.  Momma rabbits know that they can draw the attention of predators so to keep their babies safe, they purposely stay away from the nest during the day. 

They then return at night to feed and snuggle the babies when it’s less likely they’ll be seen (and smelled).  So if you find a nest of baby bunnies, it is usually best to leave them alone.  Mom is probably nearby and waiting to come home - which she certainly won’t do with us humans hanging around!
