The Harris’ Antelope Squirrel gathers and plants seeds (note the chubby cheek).
The Round-tailed Ground Squirrel aerates my soil.
The Rock Squirrel creates berms and swales for rainwater harvesting.
The Verdin removes bugs from my plants.
These Gambel’s Quail remove bugs from my soil.
This Desert Cottontail trims groundcovers.
This Desert Cottontail trims bushes (he’s an arborist).
And this Desert Cottontail is clearly the supervisor (specializing in siestas).
They don’t work during the middle of the day in the summer and I wish they wouldn’t trim things back so hard but their rates are really reasonable and they work year round, so I guess I can’t complain.
