Re: birds and other critters

DF: We have rats in the country, too. :-) As far as wildlife comparison,
I can't give you one, I can just tell you what we have in my area of
Iowa: birds are too varied to list here but include everything from
common pigeons and sparrows, multiple song bird species, pheasant,
quail, multiple species of ducks, Canada geese, etc. on through
magnificent birds of prey like peregrine falcons, red tailed hawks,
multiple species of owls, and bald eagles; white tailed deer, of course;
fox, raccoon, skunk, rabbits, beavers, woodchucks, squirrels (black,
grey, brown), ground squirrels (i.e. chipmunks), mice, rats, coyote,
muskrat, river otters, turtles (box, paint, snapping), opposum, and we
won't go into the multiple species of fish to be found in our rivers,
streams,lakes. I'm sure there are many other animals I'm
forgetting...this list is just off the top of my head and are things we
see fairly often around here. I was amazed how when we went to South
Dakota last summer, we counted at least 18 species of animals we'd never
seen in Iowa. And oh, yeah: we do on very rare occasions, get the lost
moose that has wandered down from Minnesota!

No, no I should make myself more clear.  I was refering to outside the city
in the country not inner city...rats...good grief!
