It's a jungle out there

When I drive my son to music lesson, we always look out for deer grazing in the field where the road runs past the airport. None there today, probably hiding in the trees away from the bitter wind. But all the same, they are often to be seen.

Where I grew up, the largest wild animals around were seagulls. Land animals living wild? Maybe a few small mammals - things like mice and the occasional rabbit.

I love that my kids can grow up seeing larger creatures roaming wild: deer, eagles, seals, sometimes raccoons, and (just once) a bear.
