There has been quite a lot of animal activity over the last week or so. I’ll try to catch up on the ANIMALS SPOTTED page (above).
Spring is definitely here. The mesquite trees wait until it is dark and then they put out copious new tasty little leaves. In the morning, we are treated to a profusion of greenery, which the jackrabbits seem to favor.
This guy got here first, but an interloper appeared nearly immediately – and the chase was on.
After chasing off the interloper, our friend here had a few nibbles, and then took off in the same direction that the other jackrabbit had gone. These look like rangy teenagers, but they are the first we have seen this season.
Success was achieved – a tasty jackrabbit mesquite salad to start the day.
