Friendly Fowl

When I came home Friday there was a wild turkey in our backyard near the breezeway, it was probably no more than six feet from me. It wasn't very happy to see me appear so close to it and immediately hiked up our hill, disappearing into the neighbors' backyard before we could snap a photo.

Our backyard is very popular with squirrels, rabbits, cardinals, black-capped chickadees, and several other common birds. I love blue jays but they are not as common in the Twin Cities as they were in Kansas when I was growing up.
