Miss Bailey's Discovery
On Sunday afternoon I had just sat down on the back porch with a glass of ice tea after battling the ivy on the bank in my backyard (not done yet!!) when I heard a little squeak. Bailey loves to explore the bank and snorkel through the ivy and on Sunday, she found three little somethings...newborn bunnies. We promptly removed Bailey and put her in the house. She was not happy. I grabbed my camera to take a couple of shots and then very carefully covered them up again. Believe me, moving rabbit fur with sticks is not an easy process, but I didn't want to touch anything with my fingers. I just hope mama came back at some point to feed them. I learned from our vet that rabbits only feed their young once a day, the rest of the time, the mother tries to stay far away from the nest, so that she is not drawing attention to the babes. I will be on the look out for baby bunnies lopping through my backyard.
