Full moon rising

It’s been a hot month with many days over 100 degrees. Even the moon looked fiery last Thursday.

Thank you to all who donated towards our matching funds drive. We brought in $2000 in extra support which was matched.

We still have the baby quail which got separated from their family 6 weeks ago. They are flying around their enclosure and are ready to go, except we are waiting for more favorable weather. For now, they have all the food and water they want.

Kaa, the gopher snake, was here for a drink and soaking early this morning. We always have bees swarming the water pans, but he did not seem to mind. I got bitten 2 days ago and had a fairly severe local reaction. A bee expert said this kind of bee comes to drink right before dying.

Little Chico injured his eye. We suspect Poco poked him playing, as he had a fly mash on the day it happened and ended up with a scratched cornea. He was head shy around Poco for a few days. It required 12 days of eye ointment 3 times a day and he has also been on benadryl. He now has a special mask that has a visor to hold the mesh away from his eyes. He likes it.

Poco has been singing a lot.

We did get 2 rain storms that gave us 1 & 1/2 inches of rain, which was nice.



Good news for Arizona wildlife. No more predator killing contests. We live in harmony with coyotes, bobcats and mountain lions in our area.

This is not a concern for us, no water here! However, there have been dogs dying from toxic algae blooms around the United States. We just found this current map, PLEASE take a look if you are taking your pets to lakes or other bodies of water. We have seen some heart breaking stories.
