The hawk was too high in the sky for me to get better photos. I zoomed as close as I could.
The male turkeys have been strutting about these Spring days.
Besides hawks and turkeys we have visits from quail and robins and swallows. Hummingbirds are returning, too. Everything has grown quickly and I’ll need to get out to take some photos of the greening of the yard and the peonies about to open. With the heat we’ve been having I’ll need to water instead of counting on the Spring rains to do that for me. We are getting some of the haze from the fires in Alberta. Fires this early does not bode well for our fire season. A peculiar thing that we’ve noticed this year, too, is an abundance of moths flitting about.
Hope all is well in your corner of the world.

…I often see turkeys, but NEVER with tails spread like this. Beautiful.
Gorgeous. Imagine being able to fly. (Where would you go?)
Ellen, did you recently have a post with Cyrillic writing? I looked for it again, but couldn’t find it. Maybe it wasn’t you.
Sandi, Yes, last Thursday’s post had Psalm 28:7 posted in English and in Russian. Thursday May11th…
Good question about flying…
That turkey is so handsome, no wonder he is strutting.
Beautiful picture of that soaring hawk!!! That’s a whole other story for me … The proud Turkey’s are so pretty and strut worthy. Praying for rain.
Love the Hawk in flight but the turkey steals the show. Great photos. Take care, have a happy weekend.
Wow, cool, I’ve never seen the wild turkeys strut around like that. Maybe I’ve seen seen females.
All the birds are fun tosee. We have yellow f8nches, red cardinals and brown sparrows. I am hoping the hummingbirds will arrive soon!
Loved your comment on my blog about meeting over coffee and growing our friendship through walks. Always thankful for those years.
Interesting about the moths… Every year is a different combination of weather and plants and animals, isn’t it? I remember when I was a child that some years Miller Moths were really abundant and annoying. This spring I notice more Crane Flies than I’ve seen in quite a few years. Do you have those?
I’ve not seen many Crane Flies here. I’ll need to look up Miller moths and try to identify the moths that we have this year.
Yep, I’m pretty sure what we have an infestation of is Miller Moths after looking them up online. Thanks for naming them, GretchenJoanna.
Stunning big birds!
