This is the First Baby Bunny of 2011, he just sat there looking at me eye to eye. He showed up on May 25 that year. I love to keep track from year to year noting when all the new arrivals show up, from the wild life to plant life, even the bugs are fun to chart. * This is a fun project for the whole family, it can be charting arrivals in you neighborhood, backyard, or local parks. The USA National Phenology Network also has lots of great tools to help you track wildlife in your area.
Hiding behind the hay in the morning light is the First Bunny of 2012, he or she showed up on April 11.
These little ones signal spring has arrived on the farm. Last year they showed up at the beginning of April and that seemed just a little too early. It was a hot, drought year, I wonder if the wild hare knew?
This little one showed up today, he is the smallest of the bunch, and so adorable! The innocence just flows through its eyes. These little ones are just so open to the new world before them with all of its adventures, they hop in joy at each new discovery they make (with mama always nearby of course)!
To the adventures that lay ahead.
