I was a little surprised when I looked out the window, two days in a row, and saw a turkey strolling across the backyard. Apparently we are now on the official turkey trot trail! I even heard it singing a turkey song.
“These boots are made for walking,
and that’s just what they’ll do…
One of these days these boots,
are gonna walk all over you.”
Oops, sorry…I think that’s a Nancy Sinatra song. And turkeys don’t wear boots.
“HELLOOOOOOO DOWN THERE,” called the pretty little bird
It listened very hard
and heard not a word.
“It’s okay, you can come up,” pretty bird then said
“I promise if you do, I won’t make you dead
I had a bowl of oatmeal so I’m quite well fed.”
What shall we do about the wind
when it blows us over there and back again?
We could call ourselves a kite
but I really think I might
just go with it and call it being “Zen”.
I’M NOT ALWAYS LOOKING OUT THE WINDOW INTO THE WOODS…A LOT OF MY IMAGES ARE FROM OTHER PLACES…FLORIDA FOR INSTANCE.
EGRETS ARE AMONG MY FAVORITE BIRDS TO WATCH AND PHOTOGRAPH, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT KIND OF CHARACTER YOU’RE GOING TO RUN INTO.
BIRDS AREN’T ALWAYS SITTING IN A TREE SINGING PRETTY SONGS, SOMETIMES THEY’RE BEING ORNERY. THIS LOOKS LIKE A CASE OF “ORNERY” TO ME.
