Our little or not so little bird input has decreased greatly after the "thaw" of melting snow.
I have also been putting a little scratch out for the lower ranked roo so he can eat after being run out.

I took the pooch to town for his annual vet check. On my way home, I couldn't figure out what was on the road in front of our house.

Wild Turkeys!! I have no clue how many there are in that flock ... I think I see 37 heads

There were no acorns or black walnuts here last year. I'm assuming it's because of the drought. I had some acorns from white oak trees stored in my freezer for around six years. Since the snow is starting to melt here, I am now able to walk through it without it going into my boots, so I walked to where I could put the acorns out for the wildlife. The acorns have an aroma of a freezer, so I'll be interested to see if the animals still eat them.

We have groups of turkey like that here. Not unusual to see 20-30 at a time. Fortunately we have had no snow beyond a one shot light hit...gone in 24 hours. But I still have plenty of birds feeding...scratch, horse and goat droppings. Knowing how many are out there, makes me wonder why Mr Fox prefers my hens! :( :mad:

Have had a couple bright cardinals flitting around this past week. Beautiful red! Lovely to see.
