Trot for a Turkey

I have gotten behind on my blog postings!! Expect a steady stream of blog postings over the next few days to get me caught up.

On March 16, Kellie and I took a walk around the neighborhood. We wandered a bit, and then ended up near the Lakewood Cemetery. We decided to take a stroll through the Cemetery - it is an oasis in the middle of the city where you can really get away from traffic and bustle. The birding can be good too, as there are lots of mature trees and not many (living) people.

The cemetery has a flock of resident Wild Turkeys that hang out a lot in the cemetery, but also cross over into T.S. Roberts Bird Sanctuary, which is just south of Lakewood. Knowing this, we kept our eyes peeled for the Turkeys as we walked around. Towards the end of our turn through the cemetery, we finally spied them!
