Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

Rapid Rodents

The rodents here that I have seen so far on my street here are Grey Squirrels, Chipmunks, and the Cotton-tail Rabbit.  Yesterday I saw that Cotton-tail  bunny hopping across the street just as fast as it could (smart Rabbit).  You can easily see from this photograph of that Rabbit, how the Cotton-tail came to have its name.  I also got pictures of the Squirrels and Chipmunks zipping this way and that, full speed ahead within the past week or so.  At least the critters are swift when crossing the pavement.  Please click on the thumbnail version to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. Yes—they are FAST—all of them!!!! We get after the squirrels with a big squirt gun (the ones getting into the bird feeders)… It scares them –but doesn’t hurt them… AND—it certainly doesn’t keep them from coming back… ha ha

  2. They are sure cute! I hate to see them on the roads though. I wish the traffic were a little slower.
