Birds and other mobile features in the garden 2010 #3
And it's on to thread #3 for 2010.
This thread is intended to give people a place to post photos and/or talk about birds, critters, wildlife, fish, whatever - topics you might not want to start a whole thread on, but are still garden-related. You can see the range of possible topics in the previous five threads:
I was out in the yard starting to deadhead the Phlox maculata when I rounded the corner and saw the turkeys sitting on my Adirondack chairs. They do seem to be getting comfortable around here. There are still five poults (getting bigger!) and the mother hen has picked up two more hens who seem to be acting as an extended family. Two of the poults were out of view.
I ran inside to get my camera and take photos from the deck.
They seemed to be getting disturbed by the photography so I stopped and went back inside, but they moved next door anyway, no doubt complaining about the paparazzi.
