Turkey talk

Although the day did have its drawbacks. I remembered I had taken a few pics of the highpoints.

Willow begged me to check out this grey squirrel staring in the window-by the time I got the cam out, it was in retreat.






On the way home from all the running around (see previous post), we saw a flock of wild turkeys in front of someone's mobile home.



I took a couple of pics, and we started to go, but then I noticed one was heading towards...




the rest of the flock. One is even up in the red tipped tree on the right. While we watched, a second flew up into the tree. There must have been some berries there.

Again we tried to leave the turkey flock, now numbering in the thirties. Then we saw these gals on the other side of the road.





That was a lot of turkey!

Oh I love wild turkeys!!!! My folks had them in the yard all the time in Wyoming. They would put grain out for them, my kids fed the turkeys too!!!! They are smart!
Did you ever name that squirrel?

Turkeys are funny to watch. We had several flocks at the other house that would show up. We have seen them a few times here but its closer to town..
