Revenge of the turkeys!

    It looks like a fisher cat snagged a couple of feathers off of a turkey through the chain link - and got a chunk taken out of it in return! The turkeys are fine but there's a hunk of bloody flesh on the ground.

    It looks like there's two now. We got some fresh snow on the ground and the tracks show two different sized feet.

    I hope these things give up and go away soon.

    There's a show coming on Discovery or something that talks about how turkeys descended from a particularly nasty kind of dinosaur. I kind of hope that they're right!

    Haha, turkeys. I've never had 'em but they pass through here every now and then, and in huge flocks, too!

    They must be pretty hardy to live in my neighborhood. We have cougars, bears, hawks/eagles, foxes, and bobcats wandering around constantly.

    I'm glad yours aren't hurt. [​IMG]
