Desert Cottontail Rabbit

How do you make a bandstand?

Take away their chairs!

Interesting Fact: Habitat loss due to land clearing and cattle grazing may severely affect the population of the desert cottontail.[12] Human-induced fires are also a potential threat for desert cottontail populations.[12] Another factor is its competition with the black-tailed jackrabbit (Lepus californicus), because both have the same diet, and share the same habitat.[24] When a season has been particularly dry, there is less plant life to go around. The cottontail does not fear the jackrabbit, in fact the jackrabbit is very skittish and will retreat from a confrontation in most instances. However, the black-tailed jackrabbit is much bigger, and consumes much more food at eating times. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desert_cottontail

  1. We used to have loads of cottontails where we live, but don’t see them anymore. I do still see them south of here in New Mexico, though.

    • I took this photo in New Mexico. I know coyotes are a big attackers on those cute little creatures. Thank you very much for stopping by and Happy Blogging! πŸ™‚

  2. Do you have any squirrel pictures.
