C&R: yes, we have many- I usually see 2-4 between my house and the neighbors at dusk/in early evening feeding.
When they see our car headlights, they head into the neighbors yard - that does not have dogs.
Our dogs sleep inside at night, so the rabbits usually use our back yard to "siflay" (for anyone who's read the book... ha) or eliminate as well as eat. I notice their urine leaves a white residew and keeps the grass from growing back. (no problem there- after seeing/reading watership down, I dropped any pretense at trying to disturb rabbits)
I see their pellets in my backyard.
they are often near our AC unit when we come up. I suspect the burrow is under the AC unit b/c the urine is closest there and that's where the rabbits are when we drive up.
but i don't know if rabbits urinate near the burrow or far away from it
when afraid, do they run toward or away from their burrow?
I don't think the nest/burrow is in my backyard, bc the dogs are there in the daytime and they would go wild.
the rabbits seem to like to taunt my dogs. they go to the far side of the fence, and sit just feet away from the dogs (where the dogs can't get them) and stare at them.
i'd love to hear from a biologist or someone who studies north texas rabbits to learn more about their intricate behaviors...
i also like hearing from other frisco residents who observe rabbits in their backyards and neighborhoods as well....
