small backyard notes

The squirrels keep burying acorns in our yard.  Soon we will be living in an oak forest.

A small rabbit is eating from the bird feeder bowl, bending to the bowl, sitting up and chewing.  I am curious what it is eating. 

The squirrels are afraid of the rabbit and back off as the rabbit timidly approaches.  The rabbit is also afraid of the squirrels when they move quickly.  When the squirrels fight on the feeder, the seeds go flying and the little sparrows have to work hard to find them all.

The robins are eating the pokeberries, which I thought were poisonous—time for some research!

I love it when the sparrows fly through the sun and their wings light up.
