|White-tailed Jack Rabbit photographed in July|
Monday, 17 December 2012
Our domestic duty done we are heading back to the UK this evening. I took a short walk around this area today particularly visiting the Sports Centre playing field and local gardens. A population of White-tailed Jack Rabbits lives here and you can find there droppings and tracks everywhere. The do seem to be largely nocturnal at this time of the year and I found none. They are of course now in winter white pelage rather than the grey of summer.
I did find a garden with some feeders and about a dozen House Sparrows my first of the last week. More predictably there were a few Common Redpolls and a couple of House Finches.
