Gotta Love My Job!
(Township of Ramara)
I work at a new housing construction site and have to admit, I'm in love with this site. I have a great range of wild life going past my model home even when I'm outside.
Just today, I had a Coy-Wolf go past the driveway while I was outside for a breath of fresh air. He stopped. We both looked at each other, then he continued on his way.
I didn't feel threatened in the least. However, once he left, my need for fresh air stopped and I quietly walked back into the house.
Of the 3 times I've seen him here, this was our first encounter while both outside. I now wonder if that will be a deterrent for him ever coming back. I hope not!
Since being here, I've had Deer, Wild Turkeys, Mink, Muskrats, Coyotes, Geese, Ducks, a lone Blue Heron and other assorted birds that enjoy the pond behind the model home.
I'm almost going to be sorry once things ramp up with construction as I fear all these wonderful creatures will move on to find other dwellings.
To-date, none of the 'furry' ones ever showed signs of aggression. Perhaps they are just as curious about me, as I am impressed about them.
I now refer to this site as my own piece of heaven.
Thank you for telling us about the wildlife where you work - I too love to watch the creatures, big and small, around where we live.
