After having my pair of rabbits for about two years, I have noticed that in the warmer months they eat more pellets while in the winter, they barely touch their pellets and  choose to eat mainly hay (I refill their bin about three times throughout the day now). I was wondering, is this behavior normal for rabbits? Do your rabbits change their diet in the winter months?

I don't notice it with mine. I don't think I would worry though as long as they are healthy.

Do you feed them any greens?

Yup! They get a mixture of kale, red lettuce and occasionally cucumber twice daily.

Chacha bun tends to eat more hay than usual during Winter. I do believe that they notice the changes in weather. I feed her the same amount of pellets, and I tend to leave more hay than usual for her.

Don't seem to change at all at my house...your bunnies are inside right? Certainly even when they live indoors the light changes could affect them so it makes sense they may change a bit.
