Finally got a photo of a snow bunny at the park. Actually found a burrow a few days ago that I wondered about. Checked back today and found her sitting just a few feet away from it.

Description

There was nearly a dozen along the road just before daylight. It's nice to see a healthy population along side a healthy predator population including coyote and bobcat. For the moment, it appears we have a good balance at LLELA.
