Mister Whiskers

Mister Whiskers was out trimming the lawn in the morning. Mr. W is my North-yard rabbit, Rocky is my South-yard rabbit: he likes to stand still and pretend you can’t see him.

I’ve used these guys to practice my wildlife tracking technique I learned from Jim Brandenburg. The trick is to pretend that you are an herbavore as well, walk a meandering path, looking at the ground. Stop and pick things up. Take your time. If you stare right at the rabbit, it will think you a predator and run, but if it figures that you are grazing, then he’ll accept you as a fellow vegetarian.
