Wildlife variety

Many sites only show you pictures of their deer and the occasional turkey, but we pride ourselves on having the best all around wildlife habitat with the greatest degree of biodiversity.  This page is dedicated to highlighting the diversity of our wildlife.

Bobcat (our first on camera).  Bobcats are expanding their range in west-central Illinois but are still quite rare to see.

Nice buck in front of the Raccoon tree shown above

American Badger, a ferocious critter with an unparalleled digging ability.  Quite rare in west-central Illinois due to the lack of their preferred habitat, grasslands.
