I drive my son to and from school everyday. Yesterday, we stopped and watch a small coyote pack run in an open field and then they in turned watched us. We counted hawks, owls, caracara, turkey buzzards and lots of pigeons on electric wires. Then in the afternoon, we were treated to seeing dozens of male road runners running about calling for mates.
This morning we had the bejeezas startled out of us on the way to the truck because a rabbit was drinking at a chicken waterer. He was quiet surprised to see us too--screwed up his breakfast drink. As we were driving out of the driveway, off to the left was a HUGE skunk about the size of small bear lumbering in the distance. We stopped and watched until he got lost in the tall dry grass. I have noticed little blades of grass poking up and buds on the mesquite trees.
Soon, the nest above will have new babies. I hope you all are looking around for signs of renewel and growth in your slice of heaven.
