Just yesterday and today, I've seen from my window: Canada geese, Common Mergansers, Hooded Mergansers, Wood Ducks, Mallards, a beaver, a red-tailed hawk, and an osprey.
We've seen (from our windows) moose, deer, fox, raccoons, weasels and mink (stay away from my chickens!), owls, eagles, otter, muskrats, rabbits, woodchucks, partridges, pileated woodpeckers, wild turkeys, as well as many assorted other songbirds and hawks--even an albino chickadee. That's not counting the various critters we've seen in the yard: toads, snakes, turtles, newts, voles. Squirrels, of course. There have been coyote tracks around the house, but we didn't see him until he was struck by a car. We've seen bears up the road, but not from the house. That's a good thing.
If I had to live in a city again (I've lived in Boston, and Claremont NH), they would have to drag me kicking and screaming.
