Wildlife

Hello George

This morning, while walking from one end of the property to the other, I saw George the Lizard perched on the fence. For a change, George (our name for the Sagebrush Lizards who live on and around Fernley House) didn't skitter away, but hung around long enough for me to get the camera.

We do very much like having these lizards around, because they eat spiders and other bugs. I fear the many feral cats in the neighborhood — someone is feeding them — prey upon these lizards, which is a pity given that cats won't eat the bugs.
