Shake a Tail Feather



NATIONAL PHOTO MONTH, DAY 17


Even though we live in the middle of a city, our neighborhood is full of wildlife. Our one-acre lot backs onto a steep ravine with a small creek at the bottom.

While the wildlife is interesting, it can also be frustrating. I declare war on the deer every summer when they chew my hostas down to nubs. We curse the raccoons every fall when they tear up the lawn looking for grubs.

We get frustrated with the wild turkeys when they scratch up the mulch and when Barney rolls in their poop. What is so attractive to dogs about that stinky stuff?

Truth is, though, the turkeys are a hoot to watch. Our turkey clan consists of anywhere from five to 23, depending on the day. The mating rituals are fascinating, the hen fights somewhat disturbing and the gang of young jakes amusing.

Don't you just wonder what a conversation between these two young dudes might be?

Make it a great day!
