rabbits everywhere!

One of the first things I noticed after arriving at the Cary Institute and throughout the Hudson Valley area, are all the cottontail rabbits running around at the edges of fields and yards. Depending on the time of day, morning or dusk, they are easily a more common sight than squirrels. A few weeks ago I took a little time to get a few photos of some of them in the lowlands on the Cary Institute property. It is possible some of the rabbits I have seen are New England cottontails, although they are much less common, and are actually considered endangered in New Hampshire, with possibly fewer than 100 remaining in the state (link).
