This was a first-time-ever sighting in our yard this past week. As I was sitting at my desk, I saw a huge, black shape fly across the road into our woods followed by another and another. From a distance, it looked like a vulture but of course we don't have vultures here (it took a couple of seconds for my brain to come to that conclusion)! What could it be? Then another and another landed after it. There were five in all - wild turkeys!
They are huge birds! It was fun to watch them walk out of the woods and across our lawn. Sorry for the poor photos - I was shooting through the windows.
Then, a day afterward, a huge male deer crossed through my garden for a nibble or two and then passed quickly to the neighbor's yard before I could grab my camera. If you look closely you can see his antlers.
It's been a while since I've done Outdoor Wednesday at A Southern Daydreamer but I didn't have anything interesting to share until now :) Please stop in to see the rest of the Outdoor Wednesday posts!
