Sierra Diablo WMA Waterer, June 2008

We advocate water additions.  Here is one which will not help quail. There is no way for baby or mature quail to drink from a water level they cannot reach.  Babies cannot walk up to the lip.  They will try, and some will fall in, be trapped and drown.  Rotting birds can foul the water for everything else.

This installation reflects single-species thinking – in this case it is intended for sheep.  There is no reason not to design or modify all water to be useful to all species.
