Baby Bunnies...

We have baby bunnies in our back yard. There is a brand new nest of them. We are thinking that they are only a few days old. The mommy bunny has been coming to feed them. Tomorrow there are supposed to be big thunder storms. The nest is not in a protected place; it is just in the middle of our back yard. I have read different things online as to suggestions of things to do. I have read that you can move the bunnies to a warm place during the storm and then back to their nest once it ends. I know that you want to keep as much of the fun and original nest as possible so that the mommy bunny can find where they are to feed them. Any suggestions? Are these good or bad ideas?

Leave the bunnies in their nest. They will be safe and dry there.
