Today has been gorgeous, if chilly - our high reached 36 degrees Fahrenheit, the wind stayed under 30 miles/hour, and the sun has shone all day. Hunky Husband came into my den to let me know that our local flock of Wild Turkey was visiting us. An hour later, I finally got around to going to the kitchen to take a look. I couldn't get all 54 turkeys to gather for a photo, but I was able to capture all but 1 in two photos.
P.S. Hunky Husband just came in to tell me that, at peak, he counted 58 turkeys - and saw movement in the brush that suggested there were more! Our highest previous count had been several years ago: 43 or 44.
When I offloaded the turkey photos from my camera, I also downloaded a few other photos - photos taken a couple of days ago. I post only two of them to present a study in the Carolina Wren. This cheery little bird is frequently the first thing I hear of a morning. Its piercing call and songs have the loudness that one expects from a much larger bird; yet, it can be elusive at times. Elder Brother chased the calls of one of these for two days while we were in Florida.
