Below are some recent pics of the rafter that's been hanging out behind the house all year. I'm assuming these are the poults that were hatched on-site this summer (see here). It's interesting that despite the resident Red Foxes and Coyotes in the area, most of these poults are surviving.
One morning last week, I took the dog outside for one of his daily evacuations and heard the unmistakable sound of turkeys clumsily flying through tree branches. I looked up and the group of them had been roosting in the pine and oak trees right behind the house the night before.
I saw the same rafter again this morning as I walked behind the house to check my cameras.
I was able to count 15 of them.
I, personally, can't wait to tuck in to some juicy Walkin' Bird....sweet potato souffle....maple pudding...sunshine corn bread....mashed potatoes....green bean casserole.....rice pudding.....pumpkin pie........and etc.
Happy Walkin' Bird Day (and a Happy Thanksgiving)
