Beautiful views beautifully photographed, Kuremari!

In Stockholm, Sweden, we had lots of snow beginning some time around December 15, then lots of cold, then hoar and rime frost and all mixtures in between, then a little less snow (it compacted) and less cold, but streets slippery as wobbly skating rinks (old people stayed indoors or broke arms and legs), then these last few days a lot more snow, and just now, a lot more cold again.
The blackbirds have finally decided to go for all the rowanberries that have loaded the trees until now. A fantastic globe-shaped rowan in the Botanical gardens looked still red with berries today, but it was just the empty stalks. Some very annoyed blackbirds told me to get off. They have still left the white, pink, yellow and black rowanberry varieties alone (actually the pink ones - a very clear pink - taste much nicer for humans than the ordinary red ones).
Rabbits and hares make preparatory walks around apple trees, but no one cared to even nibble at the nice fresh tulip leaves and rose stalks that I left for them. It seemed interesting to check in the botanical gardens what they preferred of all the exotic varieties of trees, shrubs and bushes - what a smörgåsbord! - but there were just "hare paths", broad as motorways, and no eating raids on anything special.

Great description Liis! :D
How come there are so many hares or rabbits in Helsinki and Stockholm?? i have hardly heard about any in Tallinn :puzzled:
and i was just thinking some days earlier that with all the forest webcams, we have never spotted any hares there!?
and they should be the most common habitant there....there is a very simple explanation for that i am sure!
but one can ask :D ( as a saying goes...one fool can ask more questions than hundred smart ones could answer :rolleyes: )

Aahhh - that is, for Stockholm, a long, fascinating and educational biological story: balance in nature, genetics, adaption, human behaviour, urban vs rural nature, population evolution, pet vs pest - you name it, it is there! Goes back about 10-15 years (and with a recent gruesome although ecological? sequel).
One answer is partly in a question: how come they were nearly all small, coal black, green-eyed?
It was pet rabbits, let loose when parents and kids tired of caretaking tasks. And curiously, they kept to the city.
Why not in Tallinn: this is a guess - there may be more loose dogs and even large cats, possibly birds of prey, in Tallinn. Maybe also handier humans who haven't lost the skill of snaring rabbits. It took at least 10 years for the Stockholm rabbits to explode into that very noticeable population.

Yes - so was I. Last night with the beautiful moonlight at eagle camera and all calm, no foxes or eagles around any longer. The hares can't be all camouflage white and invisible?

PS. The Stockholm rabbits migrated to Other animals topic

I was wondering if they were like the rabbits of the University of Victoria campus -- I think they were pets and now they are entertainment for visitors.
