Whether you live in a city or out in the country, everyone has wildlife of some sort around them. I'm not talking about
the neighbor's loud parties til 3AM! Not that kind of Wild Life...lol But everything from small song birds and hummingbirds to deer, fox and bears. Describe the wildlife in Your neighborhood or area that you live in.
I'm out in the woods. We sit in the middle of acres of 160'+ tall fir, hemlock and cedar trees so there is plenty of wildlife. I feed bird from numerous feeders which means I have squirrels and chipmunks too. This year the Goldfinch have been so bright and at least 5-6 pair. On a deck post right outside our bedroom door is a nest box. Currently there are baby greenback swallows...probably 3. The babies peep and peep until they hear a parent coming with food and then they go wild!!
Yumm-O...bugs! They will leave the nest in another week - 10 days but I'm enjoying them so much right now.
In the past we've had black bear, deer, quail, grouse, and the compliment of mountain beavers, etc. There is a family of bunnies that feed on the grass over the drain field area. There are some unwanted birds and mammals that we discourage like the weasels who killed my chickens and the sharp shin hawks who snatch my parent birds. Caught one with a camera this spring...the no good varmint! But the noisiest are the coyotes. They must have the new pups out because the past week or so they have been SO loud at night. They are up near the house or maybe within 100' and they sound like they are at the
open window...lol They seem to have no fear as they've come right up on the lawn where we have been working several times. If you move they run, but they are not afraid to scope out what's for eats.
What type of animals and/or birds live around you?

If you ask what is the single most important key to longevity, I would have to say it is avoiding worry, stress and tension. And if you didn't ask me, I'd still have to say it.
