Hunkered Down

With Coyotes on the prowl in the Grasslands and Great Horned Owls in the Trees nearby this Rabbit hunkers down in a small depression to survey the scene before scurrying off to into the cover of the surrounding shrubs.

If there are any sparrow experts out there correct me if I am wrong but I believe this is a Lark Sparrow. This was the first time I have seen, or perhaps noticed, one of these guy out at Rocky Mountain Arsenal Wildlife Refuge. It is always fun to see a new bird.
