Havalina Dinner Adventure


We have a feed trough made out of the top of an old industrial clothing press at our cabin that is used to feed many of the semi-wild animals that pass through looking for food. We turned the press upside down and anchored it to the ground. This havalina gent is one of a pair of stragglers that visit us often. We also get a larger group of fifteen or so havalina with their young that pass through plus an occasional fox.

We, along with several neighbors feed the havalina so they are not as aggressive as one might think. They know where the kitchen is.

  1. I pay a visit every day a few sites and information sites to read posts, but this website provides feature based writing.

  2. Had never heard of, nor seen, a havalina before. Seems cute – and I’m sure appreciates your generous handouts 🙂 Love your feeding trough!

    1. The little ones are cute but as they get older they get a more aggressive and not quite so cute. I’ve actually seen one eat a cactus, thorns and all sticking in it’s nose.
