I woke up to...2 Mother Hens and at least 6 young turkeys eating in my yard. I guess they heared there were free handouts here.

Hi Renna,
Well we see turkeys all the time here but it is fun when they come in the yard(-:

Hi Alex, I am sure they will be back for more freebies(-:

Hi meadowview thymes,
We do live away from the neighborhoods(-: We have herrons too but they don't come in the yard..yet...(-: They are building a business park around us now so in a year or two we probably won't have as much wildlife as we do now.

NO kidding! I wish I could have seen that in person. The only wildlife I see around here is rabbits, squirrels, raccoons, birds and dead armadillos in the middle of the road.

That is a wonderful picture. I'm glad you had your camera handy. (i'v nvr sn a rl trky)

Turkeys - fantastic!
That is what I call a wildlife friendly garden!
Keep putting that old bread out!

Hi Eve,
I usually have my camera ready to go. The turkeys were here for about 30 mins or so. (-:
Sounds like you have quite a bit of wildlife around your home too. I have never seen an armadillo dead or alive(-:

Hi Rob,
I feed the birds in the yard so I am sure the turkeys like gathering whatever the wild birds miss(-: I do put out chicken scratch too.

Wow, I go out of town for a bit, and you get on a posting roll! Loved to see the wildlife in the yard, especially something as regal as the wild turkey. You know that Ben Franklin wanted it to be the National bird symbol, not the Bald Eagle, because the wild turkey is indigenous to North America.

GREAT solution to the yellowjacket problem. I have to file that away in case I ever need it. Yes, yellowjackets can be some mean suckers.

As always Cindee, thanks for your posts. I do like your blog.

Isn't it neat when they stop by for a visit? It's been a while since our resident turkeys have been by for a visit. I wish I had gotten a picture last time they came by. They're fun to watch.
