Today I was startled by a sparrow trying to build a nest under my window air conditioner. This is not uncommon. In the past, they have even built under the cover.
I thought maybe just putting in pictures of the critters around here might be fun. It's springtime right now, meaning it goes from snowing to 80°F (27°C) about once a week here! Icicles form from the rain sometimes.
We have a wide variety of critters around:

The tiny bunnies are now about one and half times the size shown in the photo. These bunnies live under the platform outside my door (seen in the above photo). I have nearly stepped on them several times. They have no fear of me. Nor do the deer.
The grackle comes to where I toss bird seed out the window. There's no feeder, I just toss the seed on the ground. I have gotten a surprising variety of birds to come in and eat. April and May are the best time, as the birds are migrating through during that period.
Last spring snow:

Head outside and see what nature has to offer where you are!
