Rabbit breeding season runs from late March through September, a good portion of the year! During this time, rabbits with new offspring will make ground nests to protect their young. These nests are commonly found in yards and gardens, and the baby rabbits can be injured if their nest is run over during mowing. Here are some tips on how to check for ground nests before mowing your lawn, so that your local rabbits can grow up healthy and happy!
Here are some reference images of rabbit ground nests for you to compare to your yard. Happy Summer!
