California Quail, Mourning Dove and Squirrels

Yes, more cute critters in this post, the Mourning Dove was a surprise, I’ve not seen them in this area before. The quail tend to run away like a chicken with its head chopped off, zoom! Those landscape photos aren’t balanced right, too much blue but even pulling up the white level didn’t fix them. I tried! I have zero desire to go anywhere today, no plans. Supposedly, Las Vegas will hit 97F today but it’s only around 80 right now. Still too cold, LOL!!

Cuteness On My Shoes

Yesterday I got my fix of these darling little critters again at Calico Basin. Sometimes I wonder how these squirrels are doing when I’m at home, is that weird? This visit, I had less than a handful of peanuts for them, I should use seeds though. They were actually running across my shoes, then stop and sit up on their haunches to look up at me, so adorable! And so trusting too. Lots of birds came running too including two California Quail. The quail would snag a nut then very quickly run under a bush to eat its reward. These birds have a fun-sounding set of sounds.
