Western Diamondbacks' mating attempt in fall
In front of my studio window, we have a little 'house' that protects one of our quail blocks from being carried off by coyotes or dogs - havelinas can't get through the backyard fence. This morning there were coils moving inside.
Free transport provided - into the State Land next door. Yes, they can come back, but if they don't, others will. There's no vacuum in nature.
Pretty angry at first. Who wouldn't be. But we picked a nice place for theme in a dry wash with lots of rodent holes.
They took off together. I hope we didn't spoil their mood.
