October 24, 2012 On the road again....
Today, we were out early for a walk in town and found the wild turkeys we saw yesterday when we were out for the afternoon walk. Yesterday, they were hustling down the sidewalk ahead of us. Today they were out in an open field where they have a practice soccer net. We let Toby go chase them so they would fly into the trees, which they did. He was a pretty proud dog....look, I did it again. He was probably wondering why I didn't shoot those big "partridges." On the way back, they were on the ground again and he pretty much ignored them altogether. I was amazed at how close they let us get to them. When I have actually been out hunting wild turkeys.....it wasn't that easy, believe me.
Later this morning, we went out and explored the "city woods" hiking-horsetrail-skiing.....pretty much everything trails. They were actually quite nice with a nice mix of trees and a creek. During peak fall color, I imagine they would be spectacular. Now, the leaves on the trails were nice.
Speaking of different.....there are a few other birds around here also. One, I have no clue what it was this a.m. and flew just when I was going to get a photo. There were a number of cardinals around also. They are always fun as we don't see them that often at home. The rest were pretty much what I usually see. But, we are having a nice visit and good outside time....can't beat that. :)
