How neat to have those birds there!
That's interesting about the droppings. We know some of our wild mammals by dropping. Bear...obvious, coyote - full of manzanita berries, Deer - pellets, etc.
I was thinking the same, while reading, that maybe they aren't native.
I hate falling asleep, then waking up to it being hot...especially if the heater is still on! It sounds like you acted quickly, though!
Hopefully, you will catch enough rain to fill some containers.
Yes, I love it when yucca's flower!! And, so do hummingbirds! And, moths. :-)
I hope that the succulents improve. it sounds like they are trying!
The tap lights are very handy, and yes, the batteries do last a while in them, under normal use.
I have no idea why the vultures were so low, but it was a great sight. As long as all of the domestics are accounted for, I can just enjoy the sight! :-)
Have a great week!
