Sounds like you are creating Eden.

Also, I always have at least two bird baths in operation. One is at ground level and the possums, raccoons and feral cats use that one.

Eden is a pretty rough place, actually.

Here's a Yellow-shafted Northern Flicker hunting for grubs and worms in my garden earlier today.
This is a male.

This is a small pool next to the creek. The water was muddied by my dog and either a Otter or a Beaver.

Here is a Transgender Yellow Spotted Shell Turtle Hawk. They usually fly West for the Summer.

You can't go around calling something yellow that has no yellow on it. It's probably illegal and definitely immoral.

We are not savages. It has taken 1,000s of years to form civilization as we know it today.

If we were still hunter/gatherers and you came back to camp with a animal that you call yellow-something and it didn't have yellow on it - The people would form a circle around you and throw rocks at you. OR throw you off a cliff at the next full moon ceremony.

You can't be bringing bad juju back to camp!

So when the Bible says the yellow race will rule the world, it wasn't talking about Asians? That means there is some race inbound from space that will kick our collective butts? Can't say we don't deserve it!

They meant people with yellow teeth - smokers. Either that or people from the yellow half of IKEA.

Ikea has a yellow half?! How can someone be half yellow? Either someone is chicken, or he is not.

I suppose that you can't tell because this was the first time.
