Why are squirrels and birds typically the only animals found in a neighborhood?
Aside from insects

There are lots of animals found in rural areas, including raccoons, skunks, and even coyotes and recently even mountain lions. They are usually not seen by people because they don't generally come out in the open, and they are often only active at night.

They aren't. They are just the most obvious.

I live in the city, about 10 miles from any of the edges. We have deer that come in via the railroad lines (broad brush on both sides of the tracks), they go to the parks. I saw gray foxes, one red fox, at least 12 wild turkeys just in the last 2 months, chipmunks, raccoons, we have at least 2 opossums that come by nightly (one has only half a tail), I've seen one skunk and three coyotes.
ALL of them are way inside city limits.

You missed that possum up in a tree.
Go out at night, a lot of life is active at night,,yea,,mostly insects.
Raccoons in the neighbors garbage bin, stray cats hide and seek.
Toads in the yard, a lot of things you overlook.

My summer neighborhood has skunks, deer, bats, moles, mice, and raccoons. My winter neighborhood has turtles, possums, snakes, and occasionally alligators.

Other animals are nocturnal..like opossum, raccoons, skunk, porcupines, shrew, bats, moles, muskrats, etc. if there is water, then there are turtles, frogs, fish, snakes. Not to mention mice and rats, they can live anywhere.
