Neighborhood fauna.

There is a variety of wildlife in my neighborhood. Besides the battalions of squirrels and birds, there are rabbits, a raccoon that lives in the storm sewer at the end of the street, a cute feral cat, and my favorites: the resident opossum and chipmunk.
With those guys in mind, I have a habit of leaving certain viable food scraps like leftover popcorn, rice, cornbread, broccoli stems, and grapes out on the driveway — everybody's gotta eat. It's kinda interesting to see what's popular and what isn't.
The other day I made a pot of miso soup and had a quantity of canned bamboo shoots left. Those also went on the driveway.
We were talking about the arrival of the spring birds this morning, and I told Beloved that the bamboo shoots had been surprisingly popular. 
She looked at me and said, "Oooooo! We must have Pandas!"
