Early this a.m. as the sunlight was beginning to creep over the top of the mountain at the east side of my house, I'm outside on the Deck and hear something from the sky.
Looking up I see this hugh bird gliding down from the mountain. As it circles overhead I knew it was a turkey, possibly a hen, very rugged condition, with a few flight and tail feathers missing. Back towards the trees it went and landed. Then again it came up and flew north along the mountain side and landed in a clearing.
I'm sitting there wondering what on earth is that all about, when I see something running across the pasture. I get my binoculars, and its that turkey again. I think someone must have turned that thing loose nearby. I've never seen any wild turkeys in this area before. They don't migrate in singles do they?
