Wildlife in Robinson

We have had so many rabbits at the house this year. There are always a couple in the yard somewhere. They play chase and run, eat the cracked corn that the birds knock out of the birdfeeders, clean up the plums that have fallen off the tree, and of course, the dog thinks she might just catch one some day. They get less scared of us every day, proven by the fact of how close I got for this picture. The redbirds appear to be all hatched out. I can see one egg remaining so assume that it was not meant to be. If I miss days checking on them, they are liable to be gone like the bluebirds. As the water has dried up, so too have the mosquitos gotten fewer and less aggressive. We sat outside for a while tonight while Greg grilled and it wasn't a constant battle with them. I really enjoy being outside in the evenings after being cooped up in an office all day.
