Wildlife of all kinds is thick where I'm at.
All the usual spiders. I rescued a walking stick off the windshield of my car yesterday morning. The cicadas are crazy loud from about mid-afternoon
to all hours of the night. Crickets haven't picked up yet, but grasshoppers are everywhere. And when we opened up our house for a few days, we were
inundated by mosquitoes.
The rally mantis is a "thing" in Kansas City, so praying mantises are going quite well here too.
Birds are doing well too. I watched some nuthatches playing on our sweet gum and the local woodpeckers are still around. All the usual regular
suspects are there including cardinals, finches, sparrows, starlings, etc. Geese everywhere! There is a flock of wild turkeys roaming the woods
alongside the highway. And for the last two days this week, we've had a turkey vulture decide that the mock balcony outside my boss's office window is
the perfect perch from which to sun his wings and preen. He's been dubbed Dante.
I've seen coyotes and foxes, plenty of woodchucks, all kinds of deer. Keep in mind that I live in a major metropolitan where I see these.
And with winter the buzzards will be replaced by bald eagles who winter along the river.
