The Wild Turkeys of Winter
The Nine Ladies who Brunch, who turned into the 17 Ladies who Brunch and the 3 Males who Court Them last year, have been regular visitors to my backyard this winter. In fact, they have become so bold as to fly 14 feet up to my second floor deck and have availed themselves to my feeders. They now come at any hour of the day seeking sustenance thanks to all the snow we've had this winter. I can't remember the last time this area has had such consistent snow cover for such an extended period of time. It reminds me of what southern New England was like when I was a kid.
