Special Thanksgiving Visitors

Wild Turkeys used to be all over our yard, up in the trees, even stalking the house, but then they got scarce. In fact, we haven’t seen any turkeys for several months.

Apparently the heavy snow just before Thanksgiving pushed the flock out of the creek bottomland to forage along the driveway:

We counted 21 birds… and we’re glad to see they’re doing well.

Welcome back!

    Maybe it’s the same flock I saw last month on Jackson Rd by the airport: https://plus.google.com/photos/115825348318679016592/albums/6087941687533338625

      They better be careful crossing the road: that’s a dangerous spot… [wince]
