Snowshoe hare populations seem to be booming in western urban areas, but I have never seen such a young hare on it’s own. This one was either separated from it’s mother or orphaned, as it was about the size of a donut.

Just before bed, Ebbey went out in the back yard. Something quickly got the attention of either her nose, her eyes or her ears. As she bounded over towards the rustling grass, the mouse suddenly took flight and escaped. Previous mouse encounters did not include flying and Ebbey nearly fell back on her bum. Based on the size, it was likely a small brown bat feeding on an insect. Luckily it escaped Ebbey’s fast pounce.
