Five straight days the turkeys have been in our garden. They came right after dawn this morning and cleaned up the few sunflower chips that lasted overnight. A single hen was in our garden and a neighbor’s cat chased it out into the street. The modest-sized cat couldn’t have been more than one-third the turkey’s mass orf weight

The flicker and White-breasted Nuthatch have been very vocal today. A Bald Eagle was at nest site northeast of Salem Costco, along Mill Creek.
