Here's a short list of the wild life that I've seen in my neighborhood in eastern San Diego County (I'm 18 miles from downtown): mountain lions, bobcats, coyotes, foxes, golden eagles, roadrunners, vultures, barn howls, hoot owls, hawks, falcons, rattlesnakes, various other snakes, toads, lizards , scorpions, desert tortoises, 5 different species of hummingbirds, skunks, opossums, raccoons, and the occasional wild toucan.

I really enjoyed reading through this thread and learning about how much wild life is still roaming different parts of North America. We are all so lucky!

In my area:

Deer (by the millions it seems)
Skunks
Raccoon
Possum
Chipmunk
Mole
Groundhog
Mice
Fox

Common birds are cardinals, chickadees, sparrows, purple finches, house finches, cowbirds, grackles, starlings, mourning doves, and goldfinches. It's also relatively common to see striped owls and red-tailed hawks here.

Unfortunately, not much. We moved from the country, with an abundance of wildlife, but here we have some birds, squirrels and some deer (I hear, but have not seen). Everyone has fences here, so that keeps things out.

This black bear is in the backyard and food plot nightly. It's about time for him or her to enter torpor but there aren't any signs of it slowing down quite yet.
