Spring Turkey

 Spring is definitely making an appearance,
the willow tree is covered in pretty green buds.
We finally got some much needed rain the other day,
so the grass is greening up, the ducks are back,
and cardinals are making a nest near our back yard.
Of course, I wasn't expecting to see a turkey in my back yard!
We have seen a flock of wild turkeys in the area,
but I was a little surprised to see this lovely lady
 peering through my office window.

She didn't stay long, 
but I did manage to get a few good photos.

And then she flew over the fence!
Have you seen any wild life lately?
Bye for now!

What a lovely visitor! Our local river always has mallards, but recently I've seen two mandarin ducks there as well, they're beautiful. xxx
