Here's a photo taken of me on Sunday for posting for ManCat Monday. Quite mancatly if I do say so myself. It is a little dark because it was already evening.
But what was I looking up at? A birdie? A squirrel? A plane or helicopter (those do go over around here sometimes)? Kitties, it was a TURKEY gone to roost up in one of our oak trees! We had been watching a few of them in the yard during the day and come bedtime, this one decided to roost right over the deck!! Sorry no pictures, it was all Dad could do to get this picture of me looking up and then to move the heck out of the way in case it POOPED!
Pee Ess: it pooped overnight! We won't photograph it but you can sort of imagine how much poop a turkey can drop from a tree! Dad got the hose out!
Update: After we posted, Mom was able to get some pictures of a female and male turkey in our yard. In the first picture you see the female sitting on our back wall, with the male's brown tail feathers fanned out showing behind her (as well as the neighbors' swing set).
In this second picture, you can see the male strutting his stuff in our yard. Clearly it is courting season!
