Another Visit

I was in the kitchen tonight,  trying to get supper done just in case a tornado actually did form or if we lost our power, when my sweetheart told me to get my camera but to hurry.

I had no idea what was going to be in our backyard this time, we do get many visitors.

I stepped into the next room and there is three female turkeys and each had many little ones with them but this one came to the door like she wanted to show me.  I snapped the photo then

put camera down, just to watch them.  They were all healthy looking but Moms looked kind of thin so I left the doorway and went to get the bag of cracked corn.  I stepped outside to feed

them, they were skittish and moved a little distance away but with storms on the way nature takes over.  I sat with my COOL Cat and watched the Mom turkeys with their young.  They

walked up to the woods all thirty to forty of them.  What a sight.  Hope they come in from the woods in the morning,  maybe I will get them on video this time.

Here is the mother and her babies she brought right up to our back door.

  1. That is amazing that you have turkeys coming to your door. Only the mailman comes to mine, and he wouldn’t appeciate it if I called him a turkey. But seriously, how wonderous it is that the momma turkey shared her babies with you and you were able to share them with us. Thank you. Jamie 🙂

    1. You know I hated this life after the accident took trucking away when I was just 50 but I have come to see how truly blessed I am.

      She was one who was brought here as well when she was born and they seem to understand I will not hurt them. I do not want to be so friendly as to make them less leery of humans though as we do have 2x’s a year when Wild Turkey are hunted so I see it as this place is a safe zone for them. I used to hunt but never turkey the numbers were so low back then now I hurt too bad most days to lug a 7 lb gun around.
      Hope the whole crew show up this morning I threw out fresh corn(it poured so bad last night they will need food I scattered a few sunflower seeds as well for those skinny Mommies 🙂

Love to hear from you
