The GNG has two new water features in the back hillside garden, Installed a few months ago, they were pretty much ignored by wildlife. This was to be expected as wildlife needs to acclimate to changes in their surroundings. All it took was a little time. Both water features are now becoming popular with birds and mammals. And with Summer around the corner, they will become a full-blown hangout!
Common Raven has a drink.
Here, a flock of Band-tailed Pigeons squeeze-in for a cool afternoon bath.
If you watch closely, at the 40 second mark the group gets photo-bombed by a California Ground Squirrel. Way too much commotion to have a drink in peace.
