Male Turkey Displaying
Lately we've had a male turkey with two females coming to our bird feeder to clean up the seed on the ground. Today there were FIVE females, and we were excited to see the male turkey display his feathers in the courtship spread! I grabbed the camera and got some photos.
Rabbits cookin' coffee -- that's what the locals call it. But here in this little hollow in East Tennessee, when the hills surrender their misty hostage to reveal the stalwart cedars growing by the stream in our pasture, I know there is no place on earth I would rather be. The welcome mat is out! Come and sit on the porch and chat with me awhile!
