The Bunnies Project (summer 2011)

*  Bunnies Post

* Bunnies Up Close


This project is to see if we can convince the bunnies to not be afraid of us and will let us watch them up close. Mommy will help me track this project on this page.

We spread one grated carrot in front of the entrance to the bush tunnel where we saw Braveheart yesterday. He doesn't scare easily so we hope he will convince the others to come out. BH came out to eat and others were curious from other parts of the bushes but they didn't come close.

BH and another rabbit came out to eat the shredded carrot. Only BH stayed when we got close. We saw a baby today but it ran faster than the adults.

There were so many dogs running around the park off of leashes that the rabbits didn't come out at all. We see them far away but no where near our spot. Not even BH. The dogs would go right into the bushes. The owners seems to think it was funny to watch and one was training his dog to hunt.
We did see three babies in another part though.
They are so cute!

They let me be really close to them today. I got some great pictures. They have been added to the slide show. I am still hoping I get one of the really little ones to trust me. Mom says they are safer if they run from everything.

We have watched the bunnies for a few days now but really haven't seen much. They are more jumpy than before. I also haven't seen Braveheart in the last couple of visits. I think it's because the time we go there are lots of dogs. I think it's mean when people tell their dogs to chase the bunnies. We did see a lot of bunnies on the main street under the park yesterday. We figured they were there since the hill is full of tunnel holes but I haven't seen them there before. I added some new shots to the slide show.

We were at the park earlier than usual today, at lunchtime, and we didn't see a single bunny. We left carrot out in the usual spots. Dad said they would come out when it cooled down in the evening.

Our car hasn't been working so we haven't been here in a while. I was worried they would have forgotten us. They didn't they were a little more shy than usual but they were really young and are always jumpy.

Our car is officially not working at all. I don't know when we will be able to go visit the bunnies again. Mom says that we will have to start over when we do because the babies will be all grown up then.
