Living in rural British Columbia, Canada we are surrounded by wildlife. It's common year round to have fox, deer and moose on the property. They can be a pest but you learn to live with them. Bears too are common, especially in the fall, when they seek extra food in preparation for their winter hibernation. Occasionally we see such things as mountain goat and cougars passing through, and once we even saw a grizzly bear. A big enjoyment though is the wide variety of birds, both migrating and resident that show up at our bird feeders.
