Thanksgiving comes early

Momma couldn't figure out why I was running from window to window like a wild cat this morning. I maked my eye things get all way big and then ran into the kitchen and up onto the table. When Momma saw that, she said, "Timothy, GET DOWN!! You know better!" which I do, but for something so fantastic as this, I wasn't about to budge! When Momma heard "buk buk buk...buk buk..." she peeked out next to me and said "oh my gosh!" and ran to get the camera. It's not every day you get visited by a wild turkey!! When Momma goes to wave her hands at the college beans, she usually sees a bunch of deer, and sometimes gets to see the wild turkey gang (about 15) hanging out by the great big resevoir, but today, just one lone turkey. But still, we have NEVER seen turkey near our house like that! Once a few years ago we sawed the gang across the street but that was it! Today, I'm gonna make sure I keep my eye things open and my ear things in tune for that funny "buk buk buk" sound :)

More info and shmaybe more pictures (when Momma comes home from waving her hands at the beans at school) will be available later on at my wildlife watch.

Mom and Dad's friend's husband likes Wild Turkey, but I think it's a different kind of wild turkey. That is a great visitor. I know we'd be in all the windows, too...

=gasp= TURKEY!
Ohmy.
I think they look better when they don't have feathers and they've been in the oven for 3-4 hours, but that's still pretty sweet looking!

We've never seen one of those birdies near our house. We see gooses and they go "honk, honk, honk".
