Another Rabbit Moved Into Condo

After I saw the hawk grab my rabbit a few weeks ago, I wondered when I might get a new tenant.

I got another rabbit hole yesterday before the snow started. I didn’t see the new tenant yet, but it looks like a typical rabbit hole. This one is not high on the south facing wall where I was digging, but is lower on the west facing wall.

We were digging at the same time, it was funny to me. I was dumping shovelfuls of soil into a Homer bucket, and 4 feet away the rabbit was kicking dirt out of his new hole.  I am always amazed that they don’t fear me.

Rabbits don’t realize they can be food for me in my foot forest, and that I might be the hawk one day.

I am glad he/she got dug in before it turned cold again.


About rebeccatreeseed

I am a naturalist raised by naturalists. Treeseed is my earned name, while Rebecca is my birth name. I am of Northern European descent, with a quarter Irish.quarter thrown in. I suspect I was a product of northern invaders into Ireland into Ireland. but hard to say since DNA disproved the family story about Apache blood! I have found some odd ancestors to replace them. Last year I bought 5 acres of pinyon-juniper forest on the side of a mountain in Santa Fe County, New Mexico. I am fulfilling a lifetime dream of a cabin in the mountains and a food forest that will feed me and local wildlife. I want to share this new phase of my life with others that might be interested.

      They are cute, they hang out with me if I leave the dog inside. They watch me plant stuff like it is “our” garden, the little vegetable stealers. I was sad to see the other one hauled off, but the hawk was glorious. I don’t feed them directly, but they love all the wildflowers.
