  •  hi joe, one thing about florida is all the (5+ / 0-)

    beautiful birds we have here. We have a retention pond across the street so get a lot of them, even herons come to the driveway. I have a neighbor that feeds them hot dogs.

    I tried crackers, but they do not like crackers!

    Glad you went walking even if you did overdo it a bit.

      at my house we get woodpeckers.  our feeder outside has about a half a dozen individuals that are daily visitors and love suet.  we have tons of other birds that visit, but the woodpeckers really stand out.

        this house, pecking away at a palm tree I had planted.

        In another tree, I awoke to 2 raccoons cuddled up in the arch of the tree.

        In my garage I had a giant old possum.

        And once inside my house, I had 2 snakes.

        Florida has a lot of critters that don't know to stay out of peoples houses, garages, courtyard trees.

        But better than San Diego where I lived by the canyons of Balboa park, the first morning after I moved to a house there I got up at 4 am and went out on the front porch - looked down and saw a cat in the dark and started towards him to pet him only to see a big white stripe on his back and tail, so you can imagine how quickly I was back inside my house!
