Recently, as I was bicycling around the neighborhood one evening I saw a small creature run across the street from one side to the other. It was too small to be a cat, but maybe a baby raccoon, and it dawned on me how many medium sized creatures we actually have living in our neighborhood. We have, of course, cats and dogs, but also a lot of possums, racoons, and squirrels. Plus, I’ve even seen pigeons and though I haven’t seen it, I keep hearing an owl somwhere near my house, too. Oh, and of course we’ve all seen hummingbirds about.
The urban wild life is pretty amazing! And, above, is an adorable squirrel picture from cuteoverload.com. :)
