RE: NWF habitat certification

Donna, I'm jealous! I know the larger critters can be destructive, but I
would cope. I've seen so few wild creatures *alive* in the wild (around
here you mostly see them dead by the highway), and there's less room for
them in my neck of the woods every day. When hubby and I moved here, we
were on the edge of farmland. In the ten years since, it has all been
turned into plats of mini-mansions with very little green space around

I guess the problem is you can not be selective when inviting
wildlife... they all seem to wander in here. Besides the normal birds, I
also have snakes, voles, rabbits, deer (thankfully only now when there
is no open water for them anywhere else), skunks, raccoons, mice,
squirrels, chipmunks, quail, pheasants, possums, I also have an owl in
one of my trees, which seems very odd for here. I am waiting for the
bats and eagles to appear soon.... I think it only proves that your
landscape attracts them... cause I am in a small city, most of these
creatures should not be here. Someone let the word out and they all
wandered in here.... unreal, it is like a darn zoo here! I also used to
get coyotes and red foxes, but haven't seen them in awhile. Guessing it
got too populated here for them.
