A couple of weeks ago, after a lot of snow, which uncharacteristically stayed on the ground but was finally leaving, I looked out at our bird feeder and this is what I saw! By the time I got my camera, about 25 turkeys had move away from the feeder, so you’ll just have to believe me—both the fact that they were under our feeders and that there were 25! They must have been starved. The farmers will soon be throwing down seed (I guess they don’t do it that way anymore, but you know what I mean) and the turkeys will enjoy what they can get.
It’s hard to believe we only have an acre lot, with a thin strip of woods and a creek and we live in a suburban neighborhood. Oh well, our back yard, little as it may be, never ceases to amaze me!
