Feathered Friends

We had some unexpected feathered friends show up at the feeder this morning and they decided to spend the day. There were 11 turkeys at one point feeding on the ground around our birdfeeder. When they were full they moved off into the woods a little bit and rested around a hemlock tree, some in the branches some on the ground. It is very cold and windy here today and the branches of the tree offered some shelter from the cold and wind. Periodically they would come back up to the feeder and eat the seeds that the other birds had knocked onto the ground. Then they would go back to the tree. It was kinda fun to watch them.
Poor Boomer, being a bird dog, was not really happy. Especially since I kept him on a leash to go outside so he wouldn't scare the turkeys away.
Unfortunately the sun was at a horrible angle and there was a glare trying to take pictures throught the window.(The window is also incredible dirty from dog and cat noses as well as kid prints!) But These pictures came out okay.
