Tag Archives: snowshoe hare

I went birding by the river this morning and enjoyed lots of bird song and glimpses of warblers, vireos, flycatchers and other birds. It was mostly a ‘birding by ear’ session. The birds were generally tiny and up high in the deciduous trees now fully leafed out, and the wind was blowing. It was still fun. Every year I need to re-learn the songs of the migrant birds.

One animal that did not sing was a snowshoe hare. I saw at least six different white-footed rabbits today, already in their summer fur. The first one came bounding down the trail toward me before realizing that I was an obstacle and perhaps he/she ought to stop and consider what kind of obstacle. The hare stopped and started again before turning and bounding away.. I saw others throughout my walk in the woods and near the river. What a fun wildlife observation. No bird photos today.
