Country critters

We returned from an outing this afternoon and found the king snake next to the front of the house.  Hopefully he will continue to hang around and help reduce the gopher population. It only took a couple days after I got the one invading the garden area before new gopher mounds popped up. This week it was behind the kitchen near the valves for the drip system. As usual, I had no luck finding the runway. He had popped up in spots which had been dug up for the irrigation pipes.
 
I wonder if the invasion of mice in our attic last week was field mice fleeing the snake or if the fact that we have not seen any for a few days means that he has been eating well.
