On my search for the Easter Bunny,  I came across Mr. Groundhog who just recently came out of hibernation. While stuffing his face, he pointed me in the right direction.

Interesting Fact: Groundhogs are skilled climbers and swimmers, which helps them to escape less-skilled predators. ( http://www.havahart.com/groundhog-facts )

Cottontail Rabbit

Finally, I found him.  He was eating to get his strength up for Easter Sunday tomorrow.

Interesting Fact: Cottontail rabbits are almost completely mute animals. They communicate with each other by thumping with their back feet against the ground. ( http://animals.pawnation.com/cottontail-rabbits-1901.html )
