It’s estimated one billion birds in the U.S. die each year from crashing into windows. Put some decals on the glass or close your shades when it’s bright outside. You can also move your feeder to a shadier spot.
Keep your hummingbird feeder shaded
The nectar stays cooler which slows fermentation. And the red coloring? Don’t use it. It hurts the hummingbirds over time. They’ll find your feeder without it.
Raccoons are cute
...but don’t touch them or try and bring them home. They have a internal parasite (Baylis Ascaris worm) that is harmful to humans. And they can be really mean!
Wonder why the person ahead is driving so slowly?
The driver may know where to slow down and be extra alert for deer. Don’t be too quick to pass, and watch out.

Bats should only be watched
Don’t handle or chase them. They’re pretty shy of humans and will usually not attack or fly after you. But, if caught or picked up, they may bite. So just look.
