"Habitat: Front yard, Lawn killed and replaced by Gazania and wood mulch. Magnolia trees and phone poles/lines in strip next to street. 2 bird feeders and a water bath, all on stands.

"Observations: At about 1800 the sun shown a bit brighter an the birds came out.

"3 neighbors have told me that for years the doves had disappeared; they reappeared about 1.5 years ago, after I started putting out bird seed! Fed mostly on the ground; sometimes they go up onto feeders.

"Behavior: The rascal was eating the seeds on the ground next to the bird feeder. The seeds were from a pumpkin I cut up (I throw the seeds into the yard for the crows). Our presence disturbed the critter, and he/she ran up the nearest magnolia tree. We continued to watch, and when we walked near the tree he/she ran down, across the yard (lawn is adjacent to Gazania/wood yard), and up onto the wall between the two houses. Walked along the wall (stepping on and over two cacti in pots!) and down towards the backyard.

The gopher snake was going up the branches until a pair of towhees forced it off the branches. A towhee then guided a chick across the path to a safer distance
