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.
