It's Spring
« on: February 24, 2015, 02:46:26 PM »
Guess what is going on in our back yard? Early Spring. We have about 21 assorted young hens and toms plus 3 big Toms that hang around. They are all named out to 2025.  ::)

You are causing me to be a complete mess here. 

The cognitive dissonance is staggering.

On one hand I love the heck out of life forms and I'm admiring how kewl watching the animals in your back yard is.

On the other hand, all I can think of is stuffing, gravy, and cranberries, yum.

That's a pretty nice beard on the turkey in the top pic! I've seen wild turkeys just twice, once on the horse trails around Black Butte Ranch, and once out of Coeur d' Alene, Idaho, I love seeing them! I always wanted to hunt them but never had the chance. My parent's neighbors used to raise some and I'd practice my calling on them, lol!

There were a lot of them around Klickitat WA.  They used to flock and stand in the road in the morning and block traffic when I was trying to get to work.

That just means that you are normal.

Well, or at least as much as can be expected, right?

Spring! Spring! Spring!  I love spring!  It's 70 degrees here today, but windy, and pine tree branches and pine cones are falling all over my yard, which makes me not want to work in the yard today.  oh, well, we have the doors open at least.

Cool turkeys.  My inlaws in WI have wild turkeys in their yard (and sometimes bears), they're a lot of fun to watch.

Will one of those fellas become Thanksgiving dinner?
