Garden Critters

There has been a lot of action in the Demo Garden this fall, and during the first days of winter. Here are just a few photos from recent weeks. The garden, with its many drought-tolerant native plants, is so important to local wildlife as a source of food and shelter.

This squirrel was spotted in the garden in December.


Some resident acorn woodpeckers enjoyed the garden’s birdbath.


A hummingbird was spotting drinking nectar from our Island Snapdragon,  a beautiful California native plant (galvezia speciosa).


A California thrasher took in the sun perched on a California native buckwheat (eriogonum).


A young scrub jay found a comfortable perch.


And a hawk stopped by for a visit.
