A favorite winter companion who always brings a smile to the morning is a Mountain Cottontail we have affectionately named Bunn. While Bunn is invariably more than one we have settled on calling them all Bunn. Hey, it just is fun to say. With a cup a coffee in hand we scout the windows each morning to say hello to our crepuscular friend.

A brief appearance

While I see the trails all over the place in the snow I seldom see Voles out in the open and for good reason given how many different predators prey on them. This day I kept seeing this Vole darting in and out of a tunnel grabbing what appeared to be a quick bite to eat. They seldom stayed for more than a few seconds but is was great to get a good look and a few (albeit a bit fuzzy) photos of these small mammals.
