    What kind of wildlife do you have in your neighborhood?
    I have squirrels, raccoons, skunks, woodpeckers, crows, wild mice, probably rats, alpacas and free range donkeys

    Partridge! He thought they were quails and I thought they were prairie chickens. We just googled what they actually are last week, because a pack of real quails ran through my Ammas yard on the island, sparking a debate about what the calgary ones were.

    I’ve never seen an animal in my new neighbourhood lmao, except rats

    The gray partridge was introduced to Canada too. I’m not sure which birds are actually Canadian :imslow:
