  •  I have only had one woodpecker in the 8 years in (1+ / 0-)

    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!
