Gamble's quail and mourning doves nest in pots here. I withheld water from the Cochemiea poselgerii I showed before because some native burrowing bees made nests in the soil.

Oh THAT Zenaida...thought the taxonomists were changing names again. She's booked The Four Seasons.

Don't you dare put chicken wire up! Birds gotta have good nesting places. Not like she made the nest out of the plant itself, or on top of it. Or ate it.

Save that aggression for the iguana!

I have some Catts that have grown toward one side of the pot, leaving some empty space in the pot...but not that much... I have had one squished by a dove who thought that is was a good nesting spot... I do put empty net pots over bare spots where I don't want "company" ... I even supplied a basket with moss but no plant (nice and comfortable) in the same area as encouragement... they ignore that one.
