In Central/Southwest Ohio, mostly deer, rabbit, groundhogs, moles, beavers, hawks, and the occasional eagle, owl and coyote. There's probably more but those are what I've seen (not counting the usual squirrels, possums, raccoons, etc).

In the Berkeley hills, where I'm from, deer and quail are the most frequently seen, aside from garden snakes and salamanders. Hawks, too. When I lived in Seattle, I had possums and raccoons crossing through my yard from neighboring yards. It was a patch of cedar forest stretching through multiple back yards. In NM, I've had little desert rabbits.
