The heat is starting to prickle here in the desert. This week promises temps between 100 and 110…. aaauuugggghhh! So, it’s not surprising that the feeders, water dishes and pond are popular hangouts for the local wildlife. Every morning and late afternoon we see it all! Birds, rabbits, squirrels, javelina, lizards, bobcat, coyote, and just the other day our ‘creature from the desert hollows’ (the toad), crawled out of his hole to find refreshment. When it’s just too hot to do anything else, just eat, drink and be merry!…
Five finches find food at the fully filled feeder.
A quail couple chow down on the ‘Peckasso’ block seeder.
Baby buns have fun nibbling in the cool grassy place.
A red winged black bird gets photo-bombed while stuffing his face!
Hummingbirds flirt and hover around their honey hole hangout.
This Baltimore oriel takes a sip stop on his way-back-home Northern route.
This starling likes to take a sip and a dip.
The bunny takes a drink to put the hop in his hip!
The hawk takes a water break and claims his domain.
Mr . Toad took a sip and a dip now just waits for the rain.
The coyote gets a cool drink, soothing and calm.
A closer look reveals…yes it is…another photo bomb! (Silly quail!)
And be Merry…
The javelina , you would think, might want some water to swallow. But, they would rather tip over their drink and make a nice mud wallow!
Eat, drink and be merry, then what do we do?
Guess the only thing left…. you just gotta poo! (Pictured above, a lovely specimen of javelina shit 😉 )
