This is the courtyard at the front of our house close to sunset time.
Every morning we leave by the front door to go on our walk. We’re always surprised at what we find.
Every morning without fail, we receive little gifts like this at our front door.
We decided to move the camera I got to the front door so we could see who or what is doing this. Our bet is a rabbit.
What are your guesses? Do you think it’s a rabbit or someother wildlife?
Whatever is leaving the treats it’s nice of them to share with you 😉
It’s exciting to see what is left for us each day!
Possibly the wind. Your entryway creates a wind tunnel, bringing stuff in with no where to go once it hits the door. Your camera may not pick it up as an “event”. Just a guess.
I think this may be it. I was completely perplexed… the bunnies, squirrels, javelina and other critters eat this stuff, but I’ve never seen them deposit it. Bird typically stick to dried twigs.
We do have chipmunks and rats. They are gatherers but our doorway doesn’t seem like a place to stash stuff.
But the camera would catch them, just like it did the rabbit.
Could be a vegetarian squirrel! Is there such a thing? 😉
I just read that ground squirrels in desert climates eat cacti so maybe!
Ah ha! I was kind of joking, but why not? Squirrels are… squirrel-y.
I haven’t seen any squirrels here but many chipmunks.
I hope the camera eventually captures what it is!
We do have chipmunks. That could be it.
Keep that camera rolling. My curiosity is triggered. As for the wind depositing these goodies … no. Too selective. Who/whatever is doing this wants to keep you nourished so you keep taking care of things there. Welcome to the “Neighborhood!”
Maybe, but I see four things deposited, some edible, some not. These are things that would be in the yard and captured by wind, and would be deposited in the same place because the eddy ends in the same place every time. Anything else would trigger the camera. The camera caught the rabbit, so it would surely capture chipmunks and rats, but not light vegetation brought in by wind.
Good point. There’s usually chunks of beaver tail cactus and there aren’t any nearby. So that has me stumped.
What a beautiful sunrise photo! I’m totally cracking up that your “security” camera is providing so much wonderful amusement for us all. Thank goodness for the cable company providing something you are using for great entertainment.
I’m enjoying the camera. It’s nice that we can move it around for different views of critters.
I love all of this — the mystery – the fun footage of the bunny. Keep us posted! 😎😎😎
That is a lovely entryway. My husband showed it to me this morning. I was busy doing another editing of my novel and totally engrossed. I have been working on it since 9 this morning. I love how my husband catches all the details. I am wondering if next time I can use this skill and he can help me with editing. Hmmmmm……
I think he’d be a big help with your editing! Good luck on this draft.
Well, I don’t ask him because he will read the final product. Next time, I might ask but he was a big help with the dialogue and indentation. I take it upon myself to finish up this time but yes, he is an awesome about noticing the details.
Your husband is funny and direct, I’m writing children’s books. I’d be trembling when I would hand him my story to read. LOL Based on his comments, I might go in a totally different directions with pirates or something.
You may be able to determine which character’s quips are patterned after my husband. Hmm.
Assuming your husband is The Earth Spins… maybe not.
That’s hysterical! I can’t believe some little creature is leaving you gifts everyday! Love that the camera’s capture the wildlife. Oh and, I love the image of sunrise. Beautiful. Hugs, C
😊 I hope the camera captures something so we know what’s going on. I’m thinking the camera turns on with a light and scares away the critters.
You have to keep us updated for sure. What a cute little bunny.
I saw a teeny tiny bunny today that was half the size of this one.
I feel pretty certain it’s a wood rat (aka pack rat). They would definitely do that sort of thing.
Could be! My camera did catch a rat a couple times.
It could be the Rabbits family helping him out
I’m sure whoever it is, is frustrated when they come back and their food stash is GONE! Super cute. We are ALL in, want to know WHO it is that brings the food. LOL
I think moving the camera to the front door has scared them away! A light goes on when there’s movement.
I think so!
So funny! A little helper!
