Pags,I don't think it's so much that wild critters are drawn to us,but we SEE them because we look around us.
People watching TV at night,have no idea of all the creatures visiting their backyard at night.It's like"look and you shall find"
Of course in my case,it helps that I feed them
When we go to S Carolina,I check every flowering bush,for different butterflies,hummingbirds etc...there are lots,I walk around with my camera and people think I am just a bit nutter,taking pics of bushes..
We love animals and we notice them,while many people have blinders on,or they are just not interested,to me it's a priviledge to watch a wild animal,in the wild.
