Wildlife On The Farm

Although it is not unusual to see various forms of wildlife around our place, there has been an astounding number of wild animal sightings around our house recently.

Here are a few pictures of what we have seen just this week:

These Eastern Wild Turkey came through Monday and Tuesday. I snapped this photo at about 4-500 yards because they wouldn't let me get closer. They are equipped with the highest quality vision of any game bird.

Also on Tuesday, this little beauty trotted across our front yard.

Don't even think it!
Notice how well it blends into the shadows.
These guys came in yesterday evening. I have never seen Canada Geese so far away from a lake before.

WOW, I would be sorely tempted to ignore local game laws and take the 500 yard shot if all of those gobblers were on my land!

Unfortunatly, the flock of turkeys that we did have crossing our land has been "bribed" into staying on our neighbors property, I guess they don't like my food plot as much as his.

God Bless,
