We've got red-tailed hawks all over the neighborhood I grew up in. Mom still lives there, so I go back a lot, and I've seen one in the tree out front, and sometimes on the chimney. He's never been enjoying a meal there, but it's still nice seeing him.
My friend lives near a park (walking distance), and the park is part of a huge creekside park system. This is well into the suburbs, as you've got to drive for at least forty five minutes in any direction to get to anything resembling rural areas. And there's a small population of deer that live in this creekside park system, which goes for miles along the creek. We've seen them several times, usually in the evenings when we go for walks. It's so nice, being the only people in the park and coming across these creatures. We'd just sit there watching them quietly. Sometimes they noticed us and didn't care, they'd go on about their business until it was time to go. It was amazing.
