The wild turkey babies are rapidly growing into young adults. They paid me a visit yesterday and were very happy that we've let the lawn go without a mow because they had a buggy feast back there! Thanks to this traveling tribe of bug munching fowl, we haven't seen a tick on our dog once this year (a first). They are a fun animal to observe - cautious, skittish (rightfully so, they are tasty prey and cars are no fun) but when they are in a secure place able to just graze and meander together, they are very peaceful and make the sweetest, soft coos and clucks to one another. It's like a zen meditation when they pass through - a daily experience of stopping what I'm doing to watch the turkeys. It's something I really look forward to and it takes me to a happy, peaceful place. Ha! That's country livin' for ya. ;)
