I also live in the outskirts of some pretty dense suburbs of detroit. and I've seen coyotes, deer and numerous hawks in my back yard. _________________ God created all the fish in the sea, he just gave some more than others, cichlids rule!
Once did have seven stray horses turn up on the lawn
The gate at the back of the tree leads to another six acres but bringing Martha through to eat the grass saves fuel for the lawnmower (That is my story & I'm sticking to it)
Actually the coolest animals we get are moles, they have got to be one of the world's coolest creatures.
We get three species of owls which nest in our trees, kestrels, buzzards, sparrowhawks and a red kite. All the native tits and lots of other small birds, A pair of ravens in a lightening struck oak and loads of small mammals which my moggy tries her best to exterminate.

I'm jealous! I want a horse. But, I'll be getting a couple goats to help clean the field up. I saw a stray pony in a field this past winter when it was below zero outside. I had no idea who it belonged to so I called animal control to have it taken care of... I was seriously scared that it would freeze to death.
My favorite bird annoys most people, but I like the killdeer. When they nest in the yard I have to walk out there everyday for the show. They act like they're hurt to get you away from their nest.
Growing up I had a few run-ins with skunks (my mom had to stop me from petting the cute black/white "kitty" in the backyard once). At my current farm the coolest was a big momma moose with a yearling moose and her current baby eating some rose bushes by one of the houses. Also have a neat deer around with big manly antlers, nasty coyotes (which I chase off quick), a couple friendly squirrels, blue jays, assorted woodpeckers, pretty yellow birds in the summer, a billion little sparrows/chickadees etc, owls, irritating crows, and the 2 canada geese just arrived for the year - no water on our farm - they like wandering the fields (and waddling down the driveway in front of the cars too! Their little bums look so funny when they run!)
The coolest critter sight I've had in my yard was when a bald eagle was eating a snake in my oak tree. Others are; momma possum with a bunch of baby's living under the trailer, ospreys, red shoulder & tailed hawks..... The coral snake that decided he wanted to take up residence in my truck was not cool though. He got re-located once I coaxed him into a cooler.
I saw a mandatory bird, I just forgot the right term/name to that bird, but when I saw it it is really cool, and they said that, that bird was from different country traveling from place to place to find a good weather and for their good shelter too..
it is nice to know that they have a chance to visit here..hahaha _________________ eVitamins promo
