I also caught a bat last spring and a humming bird and have pictures....
We also caught multiple salamanders and fish, and still have them in an aquarium.

Well, where to begin...first let me tell you that I am an animal control officer in a rural area in Atlantic Canada.
Birds: I know exactly what you mean by having to stop your car because they seem suicidal. I also have have to go on numerous calls for pigeons that for no apparent reason are taking up residence on peoples porches. They can't seem to fly for some reason and are just walking around on the ground/porch. I can handle these birds as if they are completely tame including checking for injuries and they DO NOT even flinch.
Cats: We have an explosion of them, feral ones. They will however, sit on your front step and howl, you can get close but only about 6 feet. Now when I say howl, here is the weird thing, other cats are howling back like dogs would...
Dogs: Excessive barking has become the bain of my existance lately! Not to mention, the usual culprits for running that are hard to catch are actually becoming extremely passive...the normally semi-agressive ones are now down right extremely dangerous. It's like their normal personalities have taken on extreme measures in both cases.
I have to keep a log, so I will update more iif you want as the summer progresses.
Jim Berkland is a retired geologist. He was an employee of the state of California. But when he predicted a Bay area quake would take place during the 1989 World Series, he worked as a geologist for the county of Santa Clara. He then was suspended from his position. After the quake happened as he predicted, Berkland was warned not to do so again.
Jim went on to say, “I joined Earthquake Watch at SRI under contract with the U.S.G.S. to see if they could reproduce what the Chinese had done. Before the Haichang earthquake they had a system there, of maybe a hundred thousand peasants measuring water levels, checking radon with it's film exposure, measuring little tilt-meters, doing simple things. So they just day after day said, oh little tilt in the ground here. Or they would see where the patterns of earthquakes were. And animals especially farm animals, wild animals and pets. And because of the accumulation of data just before March 3, 1975 they evacuated the city of Haichang of about 100,000 people.
