We have lots of deer here. Rutting season wipes out all small trees in the yard. This year, the turkeys have been quite abundant. No sandhill cranes in the yard, but they fly overhead every spring. We've had bears in the neighborhood, but I haven't seen one yet.
Back in 2004, we had a mountain lion in the backyard one night when I had a couple buddies over for dinner. It chased a squirrel up a tree and then sat there watching us for about 15 minutes. I had time to get the video camera out and take lots of footage. Unfortunately, this was at dusk so the video isn't very good. Once the lion got bored and walked away, that's when I remembered the nightshot button on the camera. Sigh.
So many bugs, so little time.
