Turkeys =tree huggers

I’m learning I didn’t know a whole lot about living in the woods. I’m also learning I LOVE it even more than I thought I would.

For instance: Did you know that turkeys roost in trees overnight? We have close to thirty turkeys flapping into the trees every evening at dusk.

They launch off the road and glide into the trees across the street. There is quite a sharp drop (probably a good thing, we’ll never have neighbors build over there.) If you’ve ever watched hang gliders leap off a cliff to soar in the heights, it’s much like that.

The turkey’s flap awkwardly, hitting almost every tree they get near on the way to whatever branch they catch on the way. I watched three land on one branch with the third sliding off the end and taking the branch and other two with him. Quite comical.

And I’m learning something new every day.

Sharing is caring!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
