Thats why I enjoy living in the suburbs by a forest :D
We get goldfinch, nut hatch, two types of woodpecker in our yard (another that only lives in the woods). Hawks too. Plus our creek has lots of different ducks, great blue heron and a ton of tiny water birds.

taking a break from fish-keeping.

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

We have those outside... here however they are NOT native. Some pets got loose and now we have a ton of them every year. We have a large group of them that are often in a tree down the street. :3

Oh are you in England? I heard they have a huge problem with them down there. I wouldn't mind those ones being taken and tamed and sold as pets. :p

Oh no MandyPandy. It says she's in new orleans anyways.
Your location says that you're behind me, so hah! :D
I know there's a huge problem with some sort of parakeet in England. It's too cold for anything tropical to survive here, most of our invasive species live in the lake :D

We have a bee and hornet problem where I live. -_- 2 Years ago there was a large wasp nest in our driveway, and every year we have at least 2 nests of black hornets.

We have tons of wasps too. Black ones and yellow ones.. We have a hummingbird feeder, filled with sugar water. Every few days I have to drain it of about 10 dead wasps :/ It's gross. We have no clue where the nest is.
