The critters know we always have water available for them. They come by from time-to-time and visit the water pans we have all over the yard. I always enjoy watching them if I’m home to snap pictures.
A chipmunk (Antelope Squirrel)
A Desert Toad baby. This one was only about two inches long.
A Bird of Prey. It was starting to get dark when he happened by.
A thirsty Roadrunner
There is always at least one lizard on the patio all the time
And of course we had another visit from the snake earlier in the day
I like to put food out too but right now the desert has an abundance of seeds available and making the critters eat out there does alleviate some of the mess in the yard, as well as a lot more bugs. This winter we’ll put out more food when it’s hard to find on the weathered branches in the cold.
