Do you see much wildlife where you live?

There's two bald eagles that live in a tree that I can see out my window.  They're both there right now, they look amazing in the sunlight!  Seeing them I thought about some people I know who'd really like to see an eagle let alone have them living right outside their home.  So what about you guys, is anyone here fortunate enough to live near wildlife, or are you stuck inside a city with the pigeons?

I see birds taking a shit.

The only wildlife where I live is the cat that hangs at our house and the dog across the street.

It depends how you would define 'wildlife'. I live on a farm, so I'm around animals every day but I rarely see any in the wild. A couple of foxes, a badger or two and obviously a lot of birds, but nothing major. I'm probably in the wrong part of the world for the really impressive animals.

A raccoon or skunk every now and then.

Living near wildlife isn't exactly fortunate, they make noises during the night and attack your house during the day.  But to answer the question, I live in the type of area were the only wildlife you see is a seagull.

For some reason, I thought the topic title said "wildfire."  Either way, no, not very mucho wildlife nor have I seen any wildfires in my lifetime.

@emkeighcameron: 
ah yeah we have bears around here, one time a bear stood up with it's paws on my parents car, and took a bite out of this ball on the car antenna haha.  I think I've been up close to the main animals here.  Been a couple meters from an eagle that landed right infront of me while I was trying to cross a pond over a fallen tree.  Been a few meters away from a cougar.  Then of  course I've seen a bear up close, but only a black bear.

Yeah, in Wisconsin deer cross the street all the fucking time.

Posted by Grilledcheez

Yeah, tons of deer and various birds...turkeys, foxes, racoons, rabbits

Posted by foggel

Mostly winged, bipedal, endothermic, egg-laying, vertebrate animals. Other than that I don't see much. My year as a conscript was spent in northern Norway, where I saw a lot of reindeers, and some elks.

Birds, cats, dogs, foxes, skunks, squirrels, deers, various insects, and there was a bear in my neighborhood before so that counts. = - P He messed up the potatoes I was growing in the garden.

I live in a pretty heavily forested area of British Columbia so I see a good amount of wildlife. Mostly bears, birds, sqiurells, and skunks

Posted by guiseppe

I live right next to a small park connected to a church so I see birds, cats and dogs. But I guess the only wildlife would be the birds, and I guess a few stray cats.

Nice that's where I live.
Here's some pictures of the eagles I took.  One just flew away as I'm typing this, would have bee nice to have gotten that picture!  Oh well.
 First without zoom 
 Nice eagles
 Screeching
 Wings lifted slightly
 The morning shot
 
Also, took two pictures of my dogs while I was outside.  They look nice too!

Sure, possums & bats nearly every night, kangaroos & wombats on the roads, colourful birds in the trees, my brother almost ran over an echidna a few weeks back.

Wow, and I don't even know what an echidna is so it must be wild.

Not much wildlife. 
 
Foxes, pigeons, doves, the odd pterodactyl. 
 
And lots of Leprechauns.

This. Though most of them are up a tree drinking battery acid or anti freeze or something so they leave us alone. (Though four of 'em got arrested last week for breaking and entering but that's another story.)
 
As for other wildlife, I see the occasional fox, hedgehog, horses, ducks, swans, geese and robins. It's not country I live in but it's not quite suburbs either.

Think Porcupine or Hedgehog only smaller, cuter, & far more prickly!

I once shot a Unicorn that was in my back yard. I buried it and a beautiful tree sprang up there that grows watermelons. But that doesn't count, really, because everyone can see the unicorns RIGHT? 
 
On another note, there were like 8 deer in my neighbors yard a week ago. I tackled one and taught it to speak Spanish.

Posted by Alphonzo

Not much, no.  But one time I swear to God there was a fox on the sidewalk in front of my house, just chillin. Another time I saw a deer my some train tracks, and I've seen possums crawling into storm drains late at night.  
That's what I've seen, but in my entire life. not much.

Posted by pause422

Not at all.

Posted by iam3green

yes, i see deer sometimes, coyotes, bird. there are some wild life where i live.

Posted by auspiciousqueue

I usually see a variety of wildlife on my way to work. Most of the time I see deer and Canadian Geese.  
 
On a side note, that is a beautiful dog in the pictures.

When I lived in my old house I did, I always saw wild animals now I do not see any since I live in an apartment now.

Edited by phlegms

I see lots of Drug addicts and old people.
That counts as wildlife right?

Posted by erikj

I used to see all kind of animal b/c the nearest town was like 10 miles away. Now I'm like ten minutes from Mall of America so I dont even see birds.

Posted by Lestater

I saw a dead bird once.  It was black and orange all over and I could see its bones.  Does that count?

Posted by cannedstingray

In the summer time we get the usual bears looting the garbage cans. there is deer that come around now and then as well, and depending where you go around town, there is stuff to see here and there, plenty of eagles around, and ravens, down at the boat harbors or the beach is seals and sealions, whales sometimes, and in the early fall sometimes you can spot killer whales cruising by, not sure where they go, migration of some sort i guess....  lots of other less interesting things to see in regular intervals tho
Posted by addictedtopinescent

Racoons, skunks, cats, small birds, 

Edited by NathHaw

Not much, but there has been at least one skunk around for the last week or so.  I'm afraid it's going to spray my dog.
 
BTW, this is an echidna.

Listen guys I think this might seriously be Haley Joel Osmet's account.
Posted by JJOR64

Nothing really.  Just birds that fly by and the occasional rabbit and squirrel.

Posted by bombHills

I live in Montana and see plenty of deer (often dead ones), moose, elk, and other critters.

Posted by Qorious

Nope. I live in a suburban area. Barely see anything that interests me. 

Posted by TheSilentTruth

I live in a city, so, not really. Just a raccoon or a possum occasionally during the summer.

Posted by CL60

I see Deer in my yard occasionally.

Posted by DCFGS3

Kangaroos all over my university, so pretty much everytime I'm there early. Don't see much else, although there are some nice parrots and galahs (Another type of bird) which eat seeds on the ground.

Posted by InFamous91

i see a few hobos here and there
