We're hardly in the country, but we're close enough that critters are a common thing now. Opossums and raccoons are plentiful in neighborhoods that back up to wooded areas and the city keeps tabs on a group of deer in one of its larger greenspaces.
The turkeys were a new one on me, but still pretty cool.
I guess I'm a long way from the stray rat and pheasants I got used to during those bike rides in Detroit.
I've got a decent menagerie going at Maison d' Guest, including an otter, a big 'possum, trash stealing squirrels, ducks, geese, occasionally swans and I've even sighted what looks like a blue heron more than once.
They say there's beaver on Belle Isle. That's good eating if it's cleaned right.
