Good morning world. I didn’t jump out of bed this morning, but at least I was motivated to get up .. yesterdays “happy moment” with my turkey friends.. has given me the nudge needed to leave my warm bed and sleeping companions (whippets) to get ready for an early departure for the woods.
We’ve had a bit of a return of a cold snap. When I got to the area yesterday, I again was a shade late, they were on their way back into the wooded area, I could see their tail ends sauntering through the trees, picking their way over the snow. (the picture above is from last fall). There were at lest 5 of them, I reacted, I called out to them like I did last year.. a beckoning call I used… (sweet talk) with coaxing and air kisses.. darned if two of them didn’t stop in their tracks.. to listen. I was encouraged, my heart may have even sped up a bit…
“Come to me, come on… look what I have for you…” (bribery pure and simple) the two that had stopped, actually began to run back towards me… they had to have been from the group that I fed last fall. The happiness and joy they gave me by responding to me and coming right up close .. after months of being away from me… tugged at my heart…. I couldn’t have loved them more…
I will always marvel at how Nature has a way of showing us that we are all part of the Universe and kindness and pure intent (sincerity) (makoto) are what will bring about positive results/moments in our lives.

Comments on: "love calling" (2)
I’m always amazed at how tall wild turkeys are. A male turkey and his harem were around my birdbath eating the birdseed I put out for the smaller birds. I thought the crows were the largest birds that came calling. I was wrong. So wonderful to see them so close to the house. Nothing makes me smile broader than hearing the gobble-gobble call of the male to his flock. It always makes my day.
They are a pleasure to watch… at least the ones I get at the feeders.. I feed in a conservation area.. these birds live somewhere in the wilderness .. when they grace us with their presence.. I find them majestic.. altho.. there are people who are scared of the.. and if they are in mating season, I’m told they can get pretty aggressive. So far I’ve not experienced any.
