Monday morning I finally caught sight of a black-tailed jackrabbit (Lepus californicus) that has made a home in the preserved wetlands in front of our office.
I like the wetlands that we walk through to get to the door of the office each day as there a lot of birds living there. You have to be careful as they sometime fly low to the ground. I really enjoy their song each day.
It was cool to see the jackrabbit this week and I will continue to watch out for them and other small animals. I am sure there are others hiding in the brush. I do know that there are mice and lizards as I have seen them.
I am actually surprised the neighborhood wild turkeys have not been visiting, but perhaps it is just out of their range.
