White hare


It has been about seven years since we last had a flurry of observations of the Snowshoe Hare. Maybe it is enough that the numbers are starting to come up again. I have seen tracks and now Derek Kite has seen a Snowshoe Hare down a road in the mountains.

Of course, at this time of year, the hares are white.

In July 2015, the Snowshoe Hare is brown, with the exception of its large hind feet.

But, fast forward to this winter, it is white, with black eye and ear tips.
