After the rain ... Wednesday sunset
Weather report: Wednesday's rain was reported as a "trace." Thursday - clear blue skies, cool, high 76 degrees Fahrenheit. -- Beautiful, but not what we need.
A beautiful healthy-looking coyote came by the back fence this morning. The doves took off but the quail ignored it. There are ten Gambrel's Quail that come through the yard regularly. For the past couple of weeks, the quail have shown up several times a day, foraging under the mesquite trees. This is unusual. In the past they've come once in the early morning and once just before sunset.
