I have been amazed at the types of wildlife that wander around our house. They’re just going about there normal business, and our family are the invaders. The interlopers. We have moved into their world.

Recently we added vultures to the list (see my post Death In The Front Yard), and now they are frequent visitors looking for another dead animal laying about. The girls were hitting softballs in the backyard today and a few stray softballs littering the field attracted a few curious vultures wondering what the very still, plump round white balls were. They came in pretty close to inspect them.

The list so far includes field mice, owls, woodpeckers, rabbits, moles, snakes, hawks, raccoons, possums, giant frogs, skunks, coyotes, deer, pheasants, bats, shrews, quail, turkey, goundhogs, crows, ferrel cats, and of course squirrels.
