Was really pleased yesterday, to see a Turkey hen with 4 poults, at least 2 months old--in my back yard. First young I have seen this year! Barley fields surround my yard, so have not seen any Turkeys since it grew tall enough to hide them! I am not certain where they are roosting-my woods are some distance from the yard.
Hens used to bring their babies under my bird feeders, almost daily, so I could watch them grow and learn survival--most I can identify and know them a year later, as they stay together as a family group, until winter, when there are large flocks, but they disburse and have their same territories the next spring! Lovely to observe them! CJR
