Meanwhile, back in our yard, Margy took this photo of a turkey that had come by on Saturday, and decided to take a dirt bath. And, the turkey is back today! We hope it isn’t too lonely–usually we’ve seen turkeys in whole gaggles. I guess there are critters even in yards in the city of Portland. Isn’t it great to have bare patches on the lawn that are just what the turkey ordered?
I love this…made me smile. On my way to a hospice where I am a volunteer I pass an area where I sometimes see wild turkeys either in someone’s backyard, or in a wooded area nearby. Not infrequently I find myself just standing and watching them with, needless to say, a big grin on my face. Your post brought these happy memories back. Thank you!
