Sunday Visitors...

These visitors were of the winged kind and not something I see every day. I was not even planning on doing a post today, but when I looked out my living room window and saw these turkeys, well I had to get a few photos. At first I didn't even notice the Tom Turkey, he stayed outside the fence and kept watch as his three "hens" foraged through the leftovers under the bird feeder. They are so well camouflaged that I didn't even notice him until after I cropped some of the pictures. Please excuse my messy yard, I haven't done my "spring" cleaning out there yet.

Do you see the Tom's head behind the fence?

Over the fence and off on their morning walk.











Happy Sunday! I hope you have some interesting visitors today too!

  1. These are rather interesting! And it is not even Thanksgiving!! Love it. We have a wild turkey population here, as unbelievable as that sounds.They tie up traffic and drive people crazy in the neighborhood where they hang out. xo

  4. Thanks for your great comments! Tom actually "displayed" and spread out his big tail feathers, but he was too far away and I was not quick enough with the camera to get a photo of him.

  6. A little Robin Red breast visits our garden every day, but I don’t think a Turkey has been our way lately (not even at Christmas)! Great photos.
