 Well, they've certainly found a meal ticket here. Earthworms are enjoying all the ingredients I'm using to build this soil. I can't dig w/o coming up w a hand full of earthworms.  That's a feat in the desert.   My iris are loving it at this point also.  It has taken me a little longer to build this yard than I wanted, but it gives time for things to "cure" as I call it.

Definitely a shrew.  Voles are bigger and a different shape.  Shrews are in the same order as moles.  They eat insects and earthworms.

 Francelle, I too thought it was a vole. But looked that up and it didn't look anything like a vole on the internet. So my husband wrote these people and this is the answer:
"You are correct it is a shrew. If you tell me where it was photgraphed I could try and guess the species. If it was in the desert habitat types (below 4000 foot elevation) it is a desert shrew."

Since we are at about 3500 feet I guess it is a desert shrew.  I realized the last batch of mulch I got from my supplier was at the bottom of the pile, as they were almost out--so I'm thinking I might have got them in that batch of mulch.

Ahhh...imagining that irresistible "new car" smell?
