A mob of about 16 eastern grey kangaroos visit my yard each day. Once in the morning and once at dusk.

They are the epitome of punctuality.

Working on the presumption that it is ok to post pickchers, here are a couple:

An adult male (buck) and a joey:

A separate shot of the joey:

We also have a wombat who lurks around be since he is crepuscular (look it up) he's rarely seen and thus yet to be papped. He is HUEG however. We're talking Rosie O'Donnell squared.

Does anyone else get wildlife visiting their yards?

-- Max

Many, many years ago, a Koala wandered through my front yard once and then proceed down the street, climbing every Gum along his way, making sure to make his apparent discontent at their quality known to the world with an odd grumbling noise.

At my dad's place we frequently get Wattlebirds, Rainbow lorikeet, Magpie and Mudlark galor, occasionally skinks will come to call and rarely a Blue tongue might just meander through. A few days ago, I spotted what appeared to be a parrot (musta flown it's coop), we get Galahs flying overhead often too.
At my mother's it's much the same story, but with fewer lizards.

I don't live out far enough to see wild 'roos or wombats though; Woodcroft is a boring suburb, animal wise (it's a suburb, the fuck else is too be expected)..

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

RE: Kangaroos! Let me show them.
I have tons of wild life.

Elk in the fall and spring, deer year around.

Canada geese year round (I know, they are supposed to migrate, no one told them), Wood ducks (super pretty), mallard ducks, a couple of other types of ducks spend the early spring here ( I have 2 ponds, one quite large).

I have possums, raccoons and skunks.

Then there are wild turkeys and there is peafowl that probably escaped some place but has been wild here for decades.

Last not least, coyotes, bears and cougars (mountain lions) pay the occasional visit.

Oh, and once in a decade or so families of river otters come and spend a couple of months and eat most of the catfish in the pond. I've come to realize that even so it makes the pond look like heck for a year (pond scum), it is a healthy cycle for it, it is crystal clear for years afterwards. And the catfish grow back...

I think that's it, apart from all kinds of smaller birds of course...oh, and the occasional squirrel.

There are 4 feral cats too, all of whom I trapped and had fixed and released and I feed them, they would not make it otherwise. They have gotten used to me now, but I can't touch them and when they hear or see other people they disappear.

People are surprised that I manage to grow both a flower garden and a veggie garden and none of the wildlife ever disturbs it. But they don't. They go eat other people's gardens. Probably my dogs play a role in this.
