Ah, critters! We certainly have had the gamut. A raccoon was camping out in our neighbor's chimney and getting in to the trash. This is even with a locking lid! There is a number of deer that live close by and we see them periodically coming from our back yard and wandering through the yards across the street. What I like best is the number of birds. We had a tree full of cedar waxwings when it had berries on it. Now there are a variety of chickadees, nuthatches, hummingbirds, etc. I swear there is more wildlife in our urban area than we ever saw in Western North Carolina!
