Local turkeys

There were eight wild turkeys in our side yard today, chowing down on crabapples and whatever else was around. I hope they found a few japanese beetle grubs. Anne and Matt had seen turkeys on our property last year the day before Thanksgiving, but this was the first Arlene and I have seen any here.

It’s been a good weekend for wildlife, with two deer bounding across the road on Friday evening, both between the Heath Marina and here, warblers and sparrows on our walk yesterday, and a red-breasted nuthatch and a kinglet in the heritage apple tree this morning, and hermit thrushes in some burning bush bushes.
