Some people call them pillager woodpecker’s because they make those big oval holes. We have red foxes in our yard and grey foxes in our neighborhood. Gary foxes are rare, we saw one a month ago but that is only the third one we ever saw. Turkeys at our bird feeders, great blue herons fishing minnows at our dock and weasels in our wood pile. Coyotes are all over the place, howling, barking and yipping all night, pretty much surrounding us. It’s been many years since we've seen moose, bear or cougar’s here. The moose occasionally come to eat the Lilly pads, the bears wreck and steal our bird feeders. We separetly each saw Cougars and they seem to jump from hiding and run away, whew. Wild escaped game farm huge Russian boars were scary when my daughter and I were out scouting deer hunting locations, but people shot them, you don’t need a hunting permit. They can outrun a deer. It’s also been a few years since I’ve seen wolves. When I do see them it’s always in the same basic locations, years apart. There must be packs in these areas. I’ve pretty frequently (about every other year) seen their scat and prints biking way back in the bush.
