What was that fast movement rushing across the road on my early morning walk!?!? I glanced up just in time to see the the rather large cottontail rush in through a borrow opening in the salal growing along the road shoulder. It must have been munching on the new spring grasses and weeds in the large fields across the street. When the rabbit saw me it made a fast escape to safety. Further inspection of the opening where it disappeared into, I could see that it was well used many times by the local large family of relatives and friends of the rabbit population in our neighborhood.
