No matter how large or small your backyard is, there is bound to be something passing through or living there. The excitement to be had by young children, to see a possum (except when they nest in your roof) in their back yard, or maybe a python curled around your balcony or frogs enjoying your toilet bowl… (ewww…).
Of course you lucky ones that live next door a nature reserve, bush land or national park, are more likely to see wildlife up close.
For the city slicker living in towns and city suburbs and who call the city landscape their backyard, some wildlife have adapted to the changing conditions and environment, from possums in your local reserves and parks, kookaburras that sit on the balconies of home units, and Peregrine falcons seen flying around the central business district, there is bound to be something in your backyard.
