If that's all, we certainly qualify.  I have hesitated to enquire about the 
program because I really don't wish to welcome the deer, though we certainly 
supply them with food and water - although not by design.  We have many birds - 
feed them well, too.  AS for other critters we know of rabbits, skunks, 
opossums, raccoons, muskrats, groundhogs, chipmunks, white-footed mice, voles, 
moles, frogs, and an occasional river otter in the summer - in addition to deer.  
There are probably more out there than we are aware of.  I sometimes think it's 
really amazing how much life is going on all around us all the time that we 
are scarcely aware of.
