gobble-gobble-gobble!

All I ever get around here is the occasional Upupa epops (an odd-looking bird that sounds like an owl). And they're way to fast to catch on film! :p

Such majestic birds. They are very difficult to hunt as they have a keen eye and are very intelligent. They usually don't come around houses or roads, but they are more plentiful now than in the past. If you see them, they are usually looking for an alternative food source. Beautiful photos.

rhyter: they've been in compost and under the birdfeeders so they must be pretty hungry. there's still a lot of snow cover in the wood so it must be hard for them to find food. ~chris

My first time here, saw you listed under "blogs of note". Beautiful photos of the turkeys. We had a lot of poultry when I was a kid, and the turkeys were always my favorites.

Haha, turkeys. My dad likes to honk at them in the car because he thinks it's funny. I saw one fall out of a tree once. lol.
