Put some coverage on them, or else a hawk will come devour those little guys.

They have been covered up very well & a fence to keep my beagle away. They will be safe. As for hawks we got a bunch that fly over our yard lol that would be sad to see happen

You may want to watch and make sure momma rabbit comes back too. After disturbing her nest she might be afraid to come back.

I've had hawks swoop on me and my cat! It was freaky seeing a bird attacking *me*! Before that, I captured on video the takedown and eating of a Mourning Dove by that same hawk (or a relative...). Crazy.

Good luck to the bunnies. Can't stand 'em (eat my garden) but you have to root for babies to make it...

I discovered a burrow while cutting the grass. Little guys ran straight for the mower when I got close. I shut it off and raised it off of the ground in time. Afterwards I did some research because we were worried. Best thing is to leave them alone and keep pets away.
