My garden is a big part of my home life.
I live in a typical suburban neighborhood in San Diego county, but on the edge of a 6,150 acre regional park. The park brings rock climbers, hikers, mountain bikers and lucky for me, a little bit of wildlife.
This gorgeous quail is a new visitor to my suburban farm.
He seems to like the thistle seed I feed the goldfinches.
I can confirm that if you provide native plants, host plants, shelter, food and water – the wildlife will come.
