Thank you Jeff Dreier for your help with the ID! I updated it. :-)
It's nice to see other Washingtonians here on Project Noah!

This is an eastern cottontail. It has been introduced to the Northwest. I have seen others in Cowlitz and Lewis counties. It is the only cottontail in western Washington.

Thank you EmilieWatchesTrees for your ID suggestion! My bunny looks a lot like Desert Cottontail, but I'm afraid that my location is out of the range for Desert Cottontail. But I appreciate for your help! :-)
