Actually had a hummingbird on the balcony the other day. I was in the office and it flew in, checked all the flower pots, then just hovered in front of the window for a few seconds before taking off. Absolutely beautiful with irridescent greens and reds.

Only a month in the new location. I expect to see more wildlife as time goes by.

Deer in the yard several times, one time 3 deer.
Rabbit
Squirrels
Chipmunk
variety of birds including several hawks

Raccoons, possum, skunk as I walked the neighborhood, but not seen from my house.

I am not sure I believe any of you have good enough eyesight to see fish from your house? I have to wander down to the creek and put on my Polaroid sun glasses to see fish in the water.

I once saw a goose get sprayed by a skunk. I guess it was protecting its nest. Came running and squawking at the skunk who turned and let go. That goose stopped instantly in its tracks, hung its head and slunk away. I was about a hundred feet away and could smell it for hours

I'm rural on two acres surrounded by farm fields and woods

at one time or another, from my front or back door I've seen every common critter fur and feather that lives in Ohio

Deer are a regular sight in the evening
Coyotes are heard in late evening/early nights regular, but have only seen two pass the house in daylight

there's a nesting pair of Bald Eagles on the lake a mile from me.
a few years ago, I saw one in the field appx 50 yrds from me as I rolled past on my golf cart


got within appx 15ft or less of this guy while mowing

They come up at night to eat our pumpkins. I thought someone was trying to break in the first time I heard it.
