    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!
