The hens are starting to bring their babies out. I love how close they stay together.

They are little yet but I’ve seen them fly.

In fact, they can make the high jump to roost with mom in the trees by the river.

    It must be a treat to see the young turkeys more or less in your back yard. I guess turkey hens are good moms too!

      I know! I always say they look like ballerinas! They prance around and are so fun to watch. They usually walk single file to the tree and then leap up to the nest one at a time.

    Leah, I’ve just nominated you for a Sunshine Award….but I think I posted the wrong link–your old one–on my blog today. I’ll go back and correct it, but you can see it on my blog today–Suzysomething Thinks Out Loud (http://www.suzysomethingthinksoutloud.com)

    I enjoy your blog so much I want to share it with everyone. Thanks!

    Leah, the first shot of the Momma and her baby is going down on my list as one of your best. Stories could be written about that photo. You are gifted. So very gifted.
