For living in the city, we see a surprising amount of wildlife.
I wasn't shocked to see lots of squirrels, like the one pictured above, although I wasn't happy to see them taking a bite out of a pillar on our porch.
But there's more: A week or so ago I actually saw a raccoon climb straight up the ivy around the tree in our front yard. Even crazier, we've seen deer just steps from the trail a short walk from our home.
This wouldn't be weird if I was back home in northwest Ohio. But I live a few minutes away from one of Columbus' busiest streets. Talk about a cross between city and country.
