A wild rabbit has found a home…our front yard. Anne feeds “Bunny” (what we call her) kenilworth ivy twice per day. She puts a clump of the ivy on an oak tree stump and a short time later it’s gone. This pattern has been followed for the past week. I assume the rabbit hides in the dense brush, Ceanothus griseus, that covers much of the yard.
Rabbits and parrots can see behind themselves without turning –their eyes are on the sides of their head. I looked this factoid up since “Bunny” always appears to be in a trance. I guess she is keeping close watch on me.
This is the same front yard adopted by several quail families earlier this year. However, the quails have moved across the street.
We will be applying for wildlife refuge status next week.
