I live in North Carolina, and have a few acres of woods, that border my house. I used to try to feed my birds and animals the correct way, by hanging them up ... only to find them torn down all the time. Well, I started getting sick, so I just started throwing my bird seed and nuts on the deck. My newest visitor is a gray fox. He is a little curious, and waits for me to throw out some turkey, chicken, hamburger, or apples. I have several squirrels that visit everyday. One of my newest and one of my favorites is an Indigo bunting, I think. He is all blue, and beautiful. Haven't seen many wild turkeys lately. I used to have about 22 of them in my backyard. I have deer, and raccoons, hawks. I used to have a Golden Eagle, he even landed on the deck several times. Rabbits are few around here, but once in a while you see a lucky one. Love my wild animals, and have great stories to share of everyday adventures in my backyard.

Welcome to the board! I'm glad you could find us.

I like hearing about the animals in the wild. I focus a lot on the captive side, but it's refreshing to hear about experiences like yours. You've got quite a lot of visitors showing up at your place, it sounds like.

I do. Lots of cardinals,tit mouses, woodpeckers, chickadees. I guess the only problem that I don't like is when the Opossum comes on the deck at night and poops while he is eating. YUCK.... but a few days ago, I loaded up my new fox with food flying over the high deck that I feed them from. He ... the fox ate till he couldn't hardly walk back to the woods .... only to return to Poop on my deck. Darn, hope I can train him not to do that, lol.

Welcome drdolittle

what a interesting mix of animal visitors you have, hope you can get videos or pictures, I sure would love to see that.
sure is a great a way to see so many different species of animals. way less work than owning all of them. :lol:

as for the pooping on the deck, just put a big sign that reads "To all visitors: No pooping on the deck" :lol:

again, welcome, really glad you joined us.

Welcome!
Don't be disgusted by some of the animals who poop where they eat. Wild fox are notorious for this. It's their way of saying, "Dis iz MINE!" Possums, I'm not sure. I think they just go wherever, and whenever it suits them :lol: , but could also be marking their territory, too.
Enjoy your wildies! Like Pat said, best when you can enjoy them without having all the work of owning them. icon-smile
