Yesterday a whole bunch of Wild Turkeys visited our feeders. I counted 14 of them…all females or young males cause they had no beards.
Several of them came real close to the window. The old Border Collie was sleeping so he didn’t even notice.
A very brave or hungry squirrel tried chasing them away…they ignored the interruption.
One thing we noticed the little Redpolls would not visit the feeders while the turkeys were here. The turkeys scratched around in the snow. I rapped on the window and scared all but one away…Far Guy finally hollered out the window…but that Turkey must have been deaf or mildly confused….he/she took its time wandering away.
Our days are quiet, every afternoon we all settle down for a nap…good thing too as we were up very late watching the USA vs Canada Women’s Olympic Hockey Wednesday Night/early Thursday morning…what an exciting game! If you saw the awards ceremony you couldn’t helped but be moved the way the whole team locked arms and swayed back and forth while singing The National Anthem. Impressive.
