Every year my Cyclamen are eaten to the tuber/bulb/whatever.... overnight..... only after they have come into full bloom. It's the cottontail rabbits. I actually caught them at it this year. Lucky for them I wasn't armed at the time. Since you live near the woods, I wouldn't be surprised if rabbits are visiting you, too.

Maybe Wolf has a recipe for rabbits ... or a Grackle and Rabbit pie?
