Answer: It sounds as though you've already built a nice habitat for the wildlife. I would add some native grasses - the most popular grasses for High Desert gardens are Blue Grama, Side Oats Grama, Plains Lovegrass, Green Sprangletop, Cane Beardgrass, Arizona Cottontop, and the Muhlys (Muhlenbergia). These will provide food for the birds and nesting places, as well. They are drought tolerant once established and are clumping rather than spreading grasses, which will keep them from wandering into the rest of your yard. Bunnies get most of the water they need from the foliage they consume so don't expect them to drink at a watering hole. The birds will be happy with the water that puddles in the basins around your plants. I wish you continued success with your wildlife habitat!
