Living with wildlife

The longer we live here, the more wild critters we see. The goal is to make our land as wildlife friendly as possible, considering how much habitat they lose every day to subdivisions and shopping malls. If we can be a little mecca for a few, then I can feel a bit better when I shop at one of those malls.

To date we have seen:
Coyotes
Fox
Raccoons
Opossums
Rabbits
Quail
Red-tailed Hawks
Falcon
Vultures
Turkey
Deer
Great Blue Herons
A variety of ducks
The biggest selection of songbirds I've ever seen
Squirrels
Turtles
Frogs
Snakes

I love having my own little sanctuary.

We back up to woods, but the only thing we've seen since moving here in May is snakes. Ick!
