Wild turkeys vist my yard often as many of my regular readers know. Since early April this hen has been visiting very regularly. For a while it was every day. She may still I just may not always see her. For the past two years a lone hen has paid regular visits to the backyard. I was hoping that she had a nest in the nearby woods. There have been no signs of babies yet but I think there is still hope.
She seems to have a path that she normally makes and feeds a little while under the backyard oak tree before she begins heading once again for the woods.
If you are wondering what she eats take a look at this photo. She comes and eats whatever the birds leave scattered on the ground under the bird feeder. With one of those cow birds gobbling down you know there is a lot dropping to the ground. These photos are from an earlier visit. When she came by yesterday she found a little left over cracked corn I had thrown out for the squirrel that visits regularly.
Linking to Wild Bird Wednesday.
