Cottontail convention

Because my girlfriend's and my new house is so close to a large, clear right-of-way for a railroad and high-tension power lines, and because our new back yard is virtually devoid of trees itself, eastern cottontail rabbits are a daily visitor to our yard:
They usually appear one or two at a time to nibble on the grasses and weeds that are growing out there. Today was the first time that I saw three at the same time: 
We don't have anything planted in the back yard yet, and they don't seem to be destructive otherwise, so I'm just leaving them alone for now.

If I get a hankering for cottontail gumbo, however...
