Default What habitat is this?

Hey guys, While I was scouting out the new I came a crossed a thicket, at first I thought it was maybe a Coyote or a Fox Den, I did google it, and it looks more like a Rabbit, So could you guys help me out and give me a little light on this den?


Thanks you Derek.

Looks like a brush pile... Might be host to any number of animals. Don't usually see coyotes hole up in wood piles, but it does happen (maybe it happens more often in other areas, not really often in KS).

Simple solution: return to that spot, search for other sign. A picture of a brush pile could be home to anything from a beetle to a hobo. Look for tracks, scat, fur remnants, trails in and out, etc. Pretty much eliminates all doubt.

def don't think its a fox hideout. It def looks like a brush pile someone put there. Im sure something is living in it but it might just be a temp hideout for numerous animals nothing specific. rabbits, possum, smaller creatures like that. look around the inside or outside edges see if you can see any hair or prints just something to give it away.
