Eastern Cottontail Rabbits...


Photos by Barry Wallace

There are one or two bunnies every day in the winter backyard, eating seeds under the bird feeders.   The Eastern Cottontail (Sylvilagus floridanus) which is almost identical to the New England Cottontail and the Appalachian or Allegheny Cottontail is short-lived (only about two years) and is heavily preyed upon by cats and dogs, foxes, coyotes, other small predators and numerous birds of prey. 

Please comment if you wish.
