Something crashed through the underbrush.  (Temperature around 80° so I’ve got the doors open to the screens, and can hear the desert.)  I went out to check, and four mule deer were out back, apparently having run from something, possibly those two coyotes that hang out under the mesquite tree, hoping to land the fawn for a variation in their diet.  The left one stood at attention for about half an hour.  The other three looked around as I talked to them.  (See the small antlers on the one in the back?)


A mockingbird at my birdbath.

Then the cat alerted me to another bird with the scratchy meow she uses to mention that there’s a bird outside.  Had to look around, but noticed a roadrunner on the spa deck.
