Rabbits will nest in many areas including parks, gardens and even right in the middle of a lawn. A rabbit’s nest is quite inconspicuous. It’s just a shallow depression in the ground. It’ll look just like a patch of dried grass. Under this dried grass is a bit of fur that is helping to keep the young rabbits warm.
You may not even notice an adult rabbit in your yard. The female actually spends very little time at the nest. It’s thought that this reduces the chances of attracting predators. She may only come once or twice a day to feed and she may only show up before sunrise or after the sun sets.
