Rain and animals

I live in a part of the country that has seen a lot of rain in the past few months and I have seen more animals out and about each evening than I ever have in my life. There are birds everywhere and I see bunnies and squirrels where I have never seen them before. I can't decide if I am just noticing them now or if there are honestly more around.

I know what you mean --- same here. Lots of rain, lots of small rabbits and baby racoons andbirds as well.

Not so many squirrels though as DH has stopped putting out bird seed for them!

I've noticed more too....we always have a lot of squirrels but I have noticed more rabbits.  Could be the rain....we have had more than usual these past few weeks too.
