That Turkey

May 17th, 2014

Mr Chiots is a hunter and it’s spring turkey season here in Maine. He’s been out a few times without any luck. ¬†Of course this past Sunday morning there was a BIG tom turkey right below the house trying to impress our guinea hens with his display.
Needless to say, they were less than impressed and went about their business of eating bugs and grass completely ignoring him. Lucky for him, it was Sunday morning, no hunting allowed. Otherwise he’d be in our fridge.

What wildlife have you spotted in your garden this week?
