what lives in your neighbourhood?

I have a glass brick window that just lets shapes in - but its enough to see the racoons walking down the garden fence (between my house and the row of row-houses going up the streen on one side).  Yesterday it was like racoon chrismtas shopping day - non stop traffic...

Well I am lucky to have a huge array of Bird life....Parrots Rainbow lorikeets, Galahs, Rosella's, Corella's, Major Mitchell, Sulfur Crested Cockatoos, Honey Eaters, Piping Shrikes, Magpies, Hawks........

the marsupials don't live on the door step, but there are plenty of foxes around....and plenty of wild cats.

Deer.  Lots of deer.  They are rather brazen.  You have to be careful driving down the road at night.   Shocked

In the backyard, we regularly see squirrels, chipmunks, and groundhogs.  I've seen a fox once or twice.  We occasionally see possums and armadillos, dead in the road usually.   Roll Eyes  The occasional snake (just little grass snakes, not poisonous).  Some little lizards, like gekkos.  In the summer there's what we call "tree frogs" that make the most amazing noise in the evening.  The aviary life seems to consist mostly of starlings, but I'm not a bird expert.  I have identified some robins, cardinals, and blue jays.  And crows.  And there's a couple of woodpeckers that I see/hear now and then.  There was a hummingbird that hung out around our house last summer.  It just dawned on me that I haven't seen any rabbits since we've been living on the mountain.  When we lived on the other side of town, we had rabbits all over the place.

I'm pretty sure there's a bobcat runnning around in the neighborhood somewhere.  I haven't seen it, but I think I've heard it at night.  I've heard tales about black bears, but I doubt that there are any around here; it's just a bit too far south for them.

Ditto here. Just last night I was driving home and a deer was standing in the middle of the road so, I stopped. It just kept looking at me and not moving. Finally, I honked my horn and it ran away. If I hadn't honked the horn, I probably would still be there waiting for it to move.

Lots of dogs, a few cats, squirrels, tons of Canada Geese and I hear lots of birds.

Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but she did it backwards and in high heels.

It takes an athlete to dance, but an artist to be a dancer.

I miss mine. She had to go live elsewhere because she got to be around 6 feet long.

She now has her own room at a friends house and is doing well.

Yes they can become intruders if we are not careful, but at this stage we don't have that problem.

 Shocked

now that I would never have guessed.  What was her name - and, how do you sex a giant lizard anyway (I mean all the parts are inside aren't they)?  Roll Eyes
