Sunrise and Wild Turkey

No morning and actual Wild Turkey greeted me as I woke late this morning.

A few ducks joined in as well and a random Hawk and a bunch of my small birds who love the full feeders I hang out for them.
I even saw a male Finch and he was wearing his bright Yellow outfit. I can now relax. Surgery is set for the 17th of April.  Everything is just about perfect except we are set to get slammed again this time some snow but 40 to 70 mph winds depending on which station you listen too.  So I will fill the feeders and keep the shovels by the door tonight and come morning be prepared to feed a flock of  25 to 35 wild turkeys along with all my doves, juncos, black birds, blue jays, cardinals, chickadees, woodpeckers, nuthatches, robins, titmouse and the ducks.  When it is nasty they all stop by to see me for something to eat now all I have to worry about is keeping the hawk from picking them off.  I have trained JT to bark and let me know when she sees one and then I just step outside and off it goes.  I have hundreds of acres beside and behind me it can shop at.

So here is a couple of shots of the place today.

What I See From My Back Porch-A Challenge

Cecilia over at thekitchensgarden put up a challenge which goes like this:

What I see from my back porch.

So before the rain started again I grabbed the camera to get you a few views of what is out there.

I see lots of gorgeous greens right out back and getting green with each rainy day we have. We did not have rain for weeks.

We have yet to put the roof on as we could still get feet of snow and 60 mph winds.
The garden is behind this seating area and not too far from the door and the kitchen inside.  I only have corn, squash, Cosmos, Sugar Snap peas in at the moment and those went in a week too soon our last frost is this long weekend.

After having 70+ wild turkey and now just this one hangs out and looks in the window for me to scatter some Black oil Sunflower Seeds and some cracked corn in exchange it promises to eat all the nasty ticks it can find before they get us and the pets.  We have Lyme Disease really bad here in New England.  Sad to see just one lone bird but it will be safe here with us.

I have been taking care not to let these get cold at night but come Monday they will be added to hanging pots or large containers so they can grow into real beauties!

Tons of Lilacs all over the yard it smells wonderful too.

Off it goes to roost for the night only to return in the AM and come to the door and look for me and the dog and cat.

Now that Memorial Day Weekend is almost upon us we can really go to town getting the garden going, pots planted, and yard set up for warm summer nights by the fire.

Stay safe everyone

Happy Memorial Day

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.

They brought their little ones.

I am blessed.

This proves it.  My yard has everything they need to munch on and feel safe as well.

I love when the Moms take them out on a field trip and they pick our yard!

Not many photos as I wanted them to get used of us.

 

 

 

 

A new family to raise.

Soon our place will be filled with  Wild Turkey.
