The last couple of days I have seen wild turkeys out strolling, Yesterday I saw one crossing the road, I slowed to let it get across, it took its time, crossed over, went up over the side snow bank and on into the woods, as casual as you please. Where it entered the woods it was deep, his feet sunk in to the snow, but he just get trucking along. Not a care in the world. I stayed to watch him for awhile, it I wondered if another one would come out to meet him, but no he just sauntered further into the brush. Hope he had a good day.
After my fall yesterday, I went back today with a shovel to dig out and make a step for people to use when going up and over the offending snowbank. It isn’t a masterpiece, but it is functional, and I had the pleasure of watching it being used before I left the site.
Having been very cold for the past couple of days, today when I arrived, the look out saw me coming and the calls went out, by the time I parked the crows were waiting in the trees for me to put out the grub. I still marvel at how they communicate with each other, and then when its time to “come and get it”… they seem to do it in an orderly fashion. There are a lot of them when its a full house.. Today there had to be 3, 4 dozen.. but they kept it orderly.. Truly amazing birds.. (hmmm do I sound a bit biased =^_^=)
I am very pleased to say that more and more I am meeting first time photographers not that they are new, but they have driven from away to come to Dewberry to see the Grosbeaks. The Grosbeaks are beautiful birds, I’m happy to see that they have a following. Seeing these people gather, cameras at the ready make me feel rather “proud”.. I smile to myself.. cuz I know that when I am on my own in the woods, the birds come out and share time with me.. I get to see them up close and personal without binoculars or a high powered lenses.
When I am asked why I go out every day, no matter the weather, there is only one answer, I want to spend time with the birds. No, I am not part of a group, I am on my own, it is my special time.. a time to unwind and re-energize my spirit. There is an energy and a peaceful state that happens, when I am able to simply BE, outdoors surrounded by my feather friends and the small woodland creatures that share the environment with me.
