There are a lot of things living right outside the back door. Many, in fact maybe most of them, I never see but I hear them ruslting in the bushes.
One thing I have been consistantly seeing the last several nights is a cat. I believe it is ferrel. Very skittish and stealth. I would show a picture of it but it's always in the shadows at night.
But here is a guy that I see many of his kind running around. They usually duck into or under something when I approach but this guy didn't seem care one bit that I was coming. He just gave me this look like "so, you passing me or what"?
Just one more thing to keep an eye out for.
