I'd like to know what native wild creatures you see near your house. Where I live (Tampa Bay), I see hawks daily. A pair of screech owls is nesting in my next door neighbor's tree. My neighbor on the other side has a pair of nesting cardinals. A lone adult bald eagle and its youngster live in a tree one block over. I don't know what happened to the eagle's mate. I see raccoons and opossums almost every evening, and I have a very persistent armadillo living under my shed in the back. Behind my house, there is a canal with snapping turtles, softshell turtles, and what looks like tilapia fish. Every morning, I see "The Gang of Nine" white ibis poking around in my front yard. I haven't seen any coyotes - yet!
