I’d been there a number of times before but, before this I had never, ever seen turkeys there.
For the most part, I took one of my granddaughters on the road trip to distant place to see the wildlife that lived in the area. There ere cardinals, bluejays, woodpeckers ,chickadees, sparrows, squirrels, chipmunks, and lots of other animals in the place, in that space. After about four or five trips there, seeing all the same wildlife, one day I decided to stay later. This is the first time that e stayed after 4 PM. Then late in the afternoon, there they ere. Seven turkeys trotting out of the woods.
Here’s one. (See picture)
You can go to the same place ten times and still see something different on the eleventh time you go there. That’s all I’m saying.
You can stand there with your hand out. Bring “black oil sunflower seeds”. The birds and other animals eat out of your hand. Don’t leave seeds on the ground and wait until all seeds are consumed. If you leave food or seeds on the ground, you are inviting or feeding mice or other vermin that are not your beautiful birds. Just saying.
Enjoy your stay at the wildlife sanctuary. It is fun, educational and a wonderfully, calming experience.
