It is normal for Mama Rabbit to leave her babies by themselves

If you come across a bunny nest, it is important to leave it undisturbed as mom is easily stressed.
Babies usually just stay in the nest for 3 weeks at which time they leave the nest and no longer need their mom’s care. At this time, they are usually about 4 inches long and can hide in the grass.
