Well, Hello There!!

What a surprise this morning. I was sitting at the desk to check email and heard a thump on the deck. Ordinarily that is the signal to let Boo in, one of our felines who jumps on the deck railing and peers in the office door. Well, she was sitting on the desk in my way and this turkey was on the railing peering in the office door! It has been there for a good fifteen minutes preening. I apologize for the fuzzy cell phone shot...I have yet to replace the camera that fell into the swamp.

  1. WoW! A wild turkey on your deck railing!?...right outside your door!....WoW!

    we hear turkeys in the woods around our house (i.e. When I slam my car door early in the morning) and sometimes see them on the driveway, but never that close to the house:)....Wow!

    I'd say your cell phone did a pretty good job on the picture!

  2. There were two roaming around the front yard early yesterday morning. One spotted the cats on the window sill and made a soft, cackly call as it strutted over for a closer look. The two cats held there ground although they did draw back just a little. I think they were grateful for the screen and rhododendron.

  3. Hahaha I wish I hadn't missed that!
