Backyard Wildlife

In addition to my scorpion hunting, I have been paying attention the wildlife we have in our yard.  Of the most interest in recent days has been the family of quail that I see running around the yard. I suspect them of eating the new leaves on my garden plants, but I haven’t confirmed it yet.  Anyway, I found this guy hiding under a pickup truck seat that rests under my porch.


Also, we found this nest in my front yard:


We have had a few hummingbirds now for several years in a row, and this year, they got lazy and built the next six feet from the hummingbird feeder.

Thank you for reading my post.

    We have a lot of wildlife in our yard, but no quail. I don’t think we have them where we are. I’d love to see a pheasant though. Thanks for sharing. 🙋🐦

      I always like seeing ring neck pheasants when I drive through the Plains. Quail are all over the place. I will probably put a block of quail food for them in the near future, as I’d like them to stick around.

      Thanks for reading and commenting!
