My rabbit revealed by the snow

No, he's not really a pet--but I see him most days in my yard.

Now that the snow has covered the ground, I don't know what he is eating. Should I put something out for him? Does he live partly from his winter fat? Would he enjoy some bread, or must it be vegetation?

I am posting about him because his movements were obvious this morning from his tracks in the virgin snow. He had emerged from the bushes in front of my house, which must give him good cover from the wind and snow, as well as visual cover. I could see where he moved more slowly (deeper tracks) and where he moved more quickly (his front paws did not go so deeply into the snow). The little prints looked cute.

How does he stay warm, when it is so cold outside, I wonder?

I say "he" in the indefinite sense--the rabbit may be a female.

I suppose he/she spends most of the time under ground.

If I remember correctly I used to feed my pet rabbit on bran and any greens that were going,ie the outside cauliflour stalks.

The more access the little bunny has to food the better his chances of surviving the winter.
