Winter is the best time to see these large prairie hares — at least, that's when I see more here. The sun sets now at about 5 p.m. and doesn't rise till after 9 a.m., so nights are long and jackrabbits are nocturnal.
|First light of the day, first white-tailed jackrabbit |
of the year, on the neighbour's snowbank.
|Grizzled gray, with black-tipped ears.|
|Pink nose, black ears, hiding on the sidewalk |
across the street from my house.
What is this? White-tailed jackrabbit or prairie hare.
