Yep, a couple of years ago there was a golden eagle hanging around....we're so close to the river that they come over here often.
We have hummingbirds, robins, grackels, mockingbirds, crows, sparrows, titmice, wild turkeys, cardinals, bluejays, etc. No geckos, but my mom has
some lizards here and there (she lives 20 miles west of me). Also raccoons, possums, mice, lots of squirrels, coyotes, birds of prey like hawks and
owls, bunnies, all that 'normal' stuff. I hate it when I hear the shrieks of a dying bunny in the claws of a hawk or owl.
The other day, I was sitting outside reading, and a wasp was buzzing around my head. I kept waving it away, and finally just said to it "sod off!"
and then a robin swooped down and snatched that thing right out of the air! Right in front of my face!!
We have moles, too - but our cat "Possum" is a great mole hunter....she likes to bring snakes inside to play with, too - once one of them got loose in
the house and then turned up under the dishwasher a couple of weeks or so later - three feet long. When she brought it in it was six inches......
