    Little bunnies are nothing new around here, there seems to be an explosion of them. But today was funny. There was a little junior size bunny trying to pull out a tender root from the dirt. He...

    Breakfast in the desert

    This morning saw a roadrunner with a juicy lizard hanging from its mouth. Watched him for a while (I was waiting for the cars to pass so I could turn left.) He looked so happy with his catch. :D

    Yes, I think I have found a good patch. And the funny thing is it happens near the top of the hour. The owls were at 5:55am and the grackle was at 8:55 am.
