it's like wild kingdom around here!

Hand to God, we've had three baby bunnies playing tag in our yard and our neighbor's yards. We've had a female mallard dining on bird seed under my feeder while house and yellow finches cavorted (Blake has permission to chase off any blackbirds, red-winged or no). And upon walking back towards the back door, a small field mouse darted back under our little patio, to peek out at us three or four more times before deciding that our talk of "traps" and "killing it" made it want to stay hidden.

All this happened within a ten-minute span while I started up the grill. Holy moly!

I've seen the rabbits too. They looked like they were chewing on your plants.
