Turkey Tracks on the Porch

We got home to Iowa from Wisconsin after three weeks to find turkey tracks on the front stoop and deer tracks up next to it. Curious things they are. They use to walk up and peck the bumper of the Tundra because they thought they were looking at another bird. Hope to see them this weekend while we enjoy our time home. No pooh left behind like we were use to with the chickens. You would look at them and they thought it was time to "vent" as it is called in animal husbandry terms.

I didn't mention moving several inches of snow. Sounds like some will melt tomarrow.

Hi Cyndi B, from my imaginary thinking, you seem to stay in a real nice place. Why does your wanderlust take you away from there, especially in winter?

Today was the first time in a while that the turkeys returned to our backyard. The snow was too deep and they couldn't get to the ground below the birdfeeders.

The finch's feathers are starting to turn yellow. Can spring be far behind?

Last Thursday we headed out to do the weekly shop and passed a house with turkeys in the driveway and on the porch as well. I bet the bare ground of the plowed driveway attracted them. Back in the 1970's they were reintroduced to Vermont and the program has been a big success. It is quite common to see them now and they are always fun to watch. Raz
