Shaw and I spent the weekend "playing" at the Hideout.
We put some finishing touches on the wildlife guzzler, including this shed roof, which will add some shade as well as catch rain to help keep it full. It had been about three weeks since the last filling and we calculated that in the heat of the summer, it appears to have lost about 100 gallons per week through wildlife consumption and evaporation.
We were both amazed to see how many bird feathers were floating and surrounding the guzzler, and we were thrilled to see about 50 doves enjoying a bath Saturday morning.
The Palo Verde trees seem to be thriving and we brought home several of the new seed pods to hopefully germinate and later plant.
