I was at a playground with my son and there were several rabbits running in circles everywhere. They were not shy and were running and jumping all over the place. They finally wore themselves out and took a break. Soon after, they disappeared into the brush.
Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge rehabilitates injured or abandoned animals and educates the public about nature and the environment. Please click through to check them out and donate if you can. Or, if you are local, stop in for a visit. Here are some photos from my visit. This eagle was so cool!
We visited and took a hike around the lake.
We also had the opportunity to see some of the other animals they care for year round.

Another amazing act of nature. I was working in the yard and noticed a small bird coming out of a fence post. The fence is designed for the rail to go into the post but it is old and not joined together.
The interesting part is that the hole used to gone straight, but something bored down into the post creating a pocket in which they created the nest. Not sure how that happened.
Finches are small, but baby finches are tiny! It makes you want to just pick them up and hold them. But, of course, that would not be good for the baby birds so I just look.
They do squeak and open their beaks when they are hungry. They will only be here a short time. I hope they enjoyed their stay!
I went for a short hike with my son and took a few quick shots. The temperature was mild and the wind was calm. Very peaceful.
It was the end of the day and the sun was setting. There was still enough light to capture some reflections on the pond.
A pair of ducks wandered around but otherwise it was pretty quiet. We were looking for frogs and turtles but just found the ducks.
It was just days ago that I posted the pictures of the baby Robins in the nest. They grew up so fast…and now they’re gone. It reminds me of how precious time is and how we need to stop and smell the roses more often. Enjoy the little things in life.
Nature can be so beautiful but it all changes so quickly. The same goes for our lives and children who grow up so fast. Stop and watch the children play. Don’t be in such a rush all the time. Everything is not so important that you can’t indulge the little ones once in a while. You will be surprised how much you gain from giving them so little.
