We feed the birds [cardinals, yellow finches, house sparrows, Carolina wrens, etc] which provides secondary food for the gray squirrels. We grow our own sunflowers and some of the other food. It helps/hurts that father in law is the head of the birder group in the state so we get food by the 50# bag.
We also have a variety of woodpeckers, hummingbirds and a couple of types of hawk [cooper, sharp shin, redtail], falcons and other migratories.
We also have rabbits, possums, raccoons. YES, we live in the suburbs but the area was a horse farm just 35 years ago and the animals don't know or care about the changes.
At the new house, which is next to a small lake we also have herons and other water fowl. Oh, and we have a friggin duck in the swimming pool. At some point, if he doesn't get the message, I will be having duck a l'orange.
Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
