PEACEFUL Dinner with Desert Dwellers in SoCal
We have plenty of Water available at all times on our land & on occasion put out seeds, fruit & dry bread. It's great fun to watch the word go out & everyone arrive when the food goes out. The other day I sat & watched them all arrive & took photos to share. I also noted a new bird (very shy) that I had never seen. Small little blackish bird with a Great Spiked Hairdo....too cute! There were also Scrub Jays with their Big Mouths arriving screaming & trying to scare others away so they can have it all for themselves. The Scrubs are amazing in that they work as a team & go back & forth picking up bread usually & taking it back to their nests. I'm thinking they have an amazing Pantry at home :) The Quail also arrived & shared a bite to eat next to the bunny rabbit. There were no Quail babies at this feeding but early in the morning my hubby was lucky enough to see a family with about a dozen little walnut-sized babies...omg they are soooo cute! A handful for the parents to herd around this desert!!
It is a lot of fun to watch everyone eat & enjoy the cool water on a day 90-100!
Man could learn a lot from watching the critters and the way they get along.
