    George spent a couple days at the river this week. He took some pictures of the turkeys at our bird feeder & around the yard. Not very good pics but it was so foggy out.

    Nice pictures Sharon. Our weather has gotten so bad here, the locals will be coming in to our feeders shortly. The pheasants are here now, roosting in the White Pine and Spruce. Last time the weather was this bad 7-8 years ago we had over a 100 pheasants in that windbreak. The mistake we made was feeding them. Attracted the deer and they began snacking on every evergreen they could find. Could have upwards of 20 deer a night out there. Inherited my Ma's dog when she died this spring. That dog hates deer. Will watch the pheasants eat , but if a deer comes along it's bye bye deer.

    Thanks for the pictures. You know those fog pictures. We had it worse for longer. They opened a special shotgun season around here for 3 days. Idiots were going out group hunting with that fog. You couldn't see a background after a 100 yards and they were shooting. Man O' Man it is a wonder they aren't dead.

    Nice pictures Sharon, Thanks. The one with a beard looks like a hen. We had a hen hanging around here that had a beard. Do you know if it is a hen or a tom? Sometimes hens have beards too.
