Brush Rabbit - one of the cuter critters on the Mendonoma Coast, as photographed by Coastal photographer, Craig Tooley

Rick and I occasionally see these cute Brush Rabbits, often affectionately called bunnies. They need bushes for protection so the native manzanitas and huckleberry bushes are important to them.

Brush Rabbits are a species of Cottontail Rabbits. They are vegetarians, nibbling on greens and bark. They do like berries too, so those nicely laden huckleberry bushes will be visited by these cute, little rabbits too. This species is only found on the West Coast from Oregon to Baja California.

Thanks to Craig for allowing me to share his photo with you. To see more of Craig's wonderful wildlife photography, here's his website:
