    We have pretty much all of the above but you can add pheasants to that. They live in our grove to the north of our home. Love hearing them chirp (or whatever you call there sound) once in awhile in the mornings. We even have kestrel and owls in our trees. Love all the wildlife!

    I live in the city but we still have racoons (set up house in our chimney when cap came off). They left when babies were big enough to be out and about. Also had a stray coyote roaming the neighborhood.

    Wow, you have a LOT of company in your yard. What state are you in?

    Who's in YOUR neighborhood?
    Lots of different birds, cows (across the road), rabbits, raccoons, skunks, deer, coyotes, occasional armadillo, mice, rats, snakes, scorpions . . . . I live out in the country.

    Wow, I guess you have a busy neighborhood. Kinda like ours. We have been feeding a bear lately. He has destroyed a couple bird feeders during the wee hours of the morning. Glad he doesn't come during the day.

    My small city back yard usually only sports my plaastic rabbits. Totally walled in. I have seen a couple of rats within the last week. They come for food from restaurants on other side of wall. Time to get traps out, again. This happens every so often. They love hiding under my ivy.
