It's That Time of Year in Sedona

Time For Wildlife to Start Showing Up!

Lots of Wildlife

Coming from a fairly urban area in southern California, we would occasionally see a coyote or a hawk.  So when I came to Sedona, seeing a lot of wildlife was very unusual and a little nerve-racking. Over the years, I have grown to enjoy seeing a lot of different types of birds, small animals and some species of wild animals, such as javelina, bobcats, mountain lions, and the occasional deer! We do have black bears, but I have never seen any as of yet. 

Building Envelopes

After moving to Sedona, I found out that most subdivisions have building envelopes. A building envelope means that part of the property has to remain open with natural shrubbery and trees.  Besides being aesthetically pleasing, it allows animals to roam free in between the building envelopes. Many of our sub-divisions border forest or washes.  Many of the animals find food sources in or around the washes, so you are likely to see wild animals on occasion. My home is about 100 yards away from either a wash or the forest. So, we probably see more than our share of animals.

Hi Lottie Kendall - Thank you. California has areas specifically designed for water and animals to travel under freeways. But I had never heard of building envelopes.

HI Myrl Jeffcoat - What a wonderful story.  I could just picture it. How thoughtful to turn the lights out. Thank you for the feature. It is always appreciated.

HI James Dray - I was afraid they were going to bring their friends! Obviously, a 5-foot wall is no obstacle to them! BTW,  we got rid of our lawn mower. We have a great landscaper who takes care of our tiny lawn.

Hi Sheila Anderson - It is really nice to see wildlife and birds.  Though, we do have to keep our heads on a swivel!

Hi Brian England - for some reason, deer bring a calming to me.  Much different than say a bobcat!

Love, love the concept of building envelope to preserve some of the natural habitat.  We had deer on the lower part of the property in Brentwood, Los Angeles.  They had babies and lived there.  I had fencing put in, so that they could not eat my rose bushes and other appetizing plants.  I had them in Napa, and we see them here in the hills.  In American Indian lore, deer represent magic! 

Our favorite winery in Napa bought a magnificent piece of land with incredible soils.  They kept the wash as it was, and planted the wines in such a way that the animals who used the soil would still enjoy being there...

Hi Sheri-I too have not heard the term building envelope but I'm very familiar with the concept. Don't you love it when we get to see Mother Nature in our back yards.

I also find the presence of deer calming...I love their nature. I had to laugh at the video, the second I step outside to get a good video, they run like the wind. Argh. We love to see them around - not the coyotes or the cougars...

HI Ron and Alexandra Seigel - I love what your favorite winery is doing. Embracing the natural habitat and the creatures is something we should all be part of. 

I have a book called "Animals Speak" by Ted Andrews.  It is very worn.  Every time an animal comes into my life, I look it up to find out what it means. If deer come into your life, you need to be more gentle with yourself and others and less critical.

Hi Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - I am not a fan of the predators but it does put things into perspective. At the beginning of spring, we have a lot of cottontail bunnies roaming through our grass throughout the community I live in.  By fall, the population has thinned enormously as you might expect with coyotes and other predators. It is part of the circle of life.

Hi Sally K. & David L. Hanson - Yes!  This is the main reason I was shooing them away. They had a banquet in my backyard!

Hi Sheri:

What fun to have captured these deer! The building envelope is a terrific idea!!

I understand there are a number of different types of deer here in CA but I've never seen one. We used to see them often in New England in the fields.

Hi Sheri Sperry - MCNE® - I have always been fond of deer. Your photos are gorgeous! I had no idea AZ has so many deer or such a variety of wildlife. I can understand why you love Sedona. It has everything, wildlife, gorgeous landscaping, sunsets, unusual plant life, and most of all great people like you.
