Bolero’s overlooks a golf course and flanks a wash. The area provides habitats for birds, jack rabbits and a host of small desert wildlife.
The curving path leads to a tunnel. Inside the tunnel was a long row of barn swallow nests made out of mud. We saw the swallows peeping out, some flocked outside, disturbed by my noisy boy.
You never know what you will find when you go on a walk. In the first week of May at 5PM, we saw:
2 road runners (male and female pair, on the golf course)
Do you know that road runners eat rattlesnakes?
Max spotted the Black Tailed Jack Rabbits first. They were frozen in the wash. Frozen until Brady took off in their direction and they bounded away from him. Lovely, long, loping limbs.
It took us a long time to walk home. Max picked up a few golf balls and tennis balls. He tucked them into the waistband of his underwear to keep his hands free to pick up more treasures. 4 is a great age.I had some movies from Redbox to watch, but we ended up sitting on the patio all night, enjoying the family visit and the supermoon. Happy Cinco de Mayo! Where you able to enjoy the Supermoon?
With a lunar regard,
