Who's Out There

Here's one of our local bobcats walking down our front sidewalk. Bill got this shot through the window of his office. The bobcat didn't seem to see him--not that it would have mattered one way or the other. They seem to have no fear of people.

It's baby quail season! We love it when the whole family comes to the water dish.

We've seen the rosy boa several times in the past few weeks. They are gentle and slow-moving snakes. It can take a couple of hours for the rosy boa to travel halfway around our house, then disappear into a hole in the rock wall.

This is a Western tanager--not a rare bird, but one we've never seen in our yard before. It was a very windy day and even just sitting on this rock was not so easy.
