More Fine Visitors!

It seems the Squash House is a gathering place for all creatures wild this spring!

Last evening I was buttoning up some things on the patio when I saw movement in the side yard.  I turned to see Mr. Turkey staring at me!
Knowing my camera was just inside the door, I quickly retrieved it and started snapping away.  Just then he started walking away from me, but then I heard a thump to my right and a brief flash of another visitor!
Turns out both Mr. and Mrs. Turkey came to visit!  If you click on the photo to enlarge it and look to the right of the basketball hoop, Mrs. Turkey is on a neighboring roof and the Mister is on their garage to the left. 
We "chatted" for quite some time - me doing my best impersonation of a turkey.   I almost had him interested for a bit!  Then the sounds of thunder began and I felt it best to retreat and let them do their thing!  I wonder who will visit next?

I think the bird party line is passing the news of a good place to visit. It'd be interesting to see a turkey fly! I guess they know it's too early for Thanksgiving too. :o)

I'll bet one of those things landing on your roof would make quite a thump. I think you need a security camera set up in your yard so as not to miss all else going on out there.

I always get so excited to see the wild turkeys too. Last summer we were sitting on the front porch at dusk and an entire flock of them trooped through the front lawn! A couple dozen at least. Even the dogs were too amazed to bark!

Talking turkey huh?

Man that is so awesome. I guess they know Thanksgiving is a long way off so they're safe, huh. Our kids in Nine Mile Falls have a lot of wild turkeys, but they're way out in the boonies, I'm amazed you got them at your house and it's so cool that you got pictures. Hugs!!

You just never know what you might find in your yard!

What a lovely treat to have that pair of Turkeys visit your yard.
Wonderful pictures of them!

Oh My Word! Candace, you have quite the wildlife in your garden. It looks as if you have already been doing some post-winter clean up in the beds. You have the most beautiful Squash House.

Hugs to you my friend :)

Love those turkeys. We have a lot around the edges of town, but I've never seen them in the neighborhood here. In Pleasanton they're in the neighborhoods at the edge of town, would love to see that.

Wow!

You have the most interesting guests! I'd love to have heard you talking turkey with Tom!

"Everything's big in America!" You have such big birds visiting your garden. Our biggest bird guest is the pheasant, and next come crows and magpies. You live an exciting life!

This has nothing to do with today's post but I am searching for the pattern for that pieced flag quilt you posted last 4th of July. Can anyone help me? Thanks, Sandy

that is so funny to see the turkey on the roof.

Gorgeous pictures, Candace! I almost thought the bird on the roof was a peacock! Birds seem to have taken a liking for your cozy garden :)
