When are cottontail rabbits most active?

+1

If one were to go looking for cottontail rabbits, what time of day would be the best? I have noticed that it seems like there are more out and about in the afternoon than in the early morning.

As far as I know, all rabbits (domesticated or wild) are most active at both dawn and dusk - they are crepuscular. The reason for this behavior is supposedly to avoid predators. So either head out at dawn or in the evening, for best chances of spotting them.

Additionally (according to Wikpedia), cottontails dislike windy days since it has an impact on their hearing and prefer to stay at home because of that. So it would be a bad idea to go rabbit spotting when it's windy.
