Very early visitors to the mouse-house.
They are getting a little too close for comfort but I'll let them be.
Both parents were with this rather large brood of turkeys who I expect were born early summer. It was interesting to watch them.
After cleaning up all the seeds that had fallen the day before, the large male started walking away from the feeders and half the small ones followed. The female then began to leave and all the rest but one followed behind. I watched as the odd one (there's always one, isn't there?) continued to eat and then suddenly realized it was alone. It held it's head up, looked around, spotted the others and then ran like the dickens across the drive-way to catch up to mom.
The female was actually waiting for the straggler as the others had caught up with the male. It was pretty cute to watch and realize what a tight little family they are.
Still, they freak me out a little so I'll keep my distance.
