Urban Bird Watching

Kate was doing a little bird watching around the house tonight. The warblers are starting to come through. Goldfinch and woodpeckers too.

But, well-trained bird watcher that she is, she quickly deduced that in spite of the fact that we are within a mile of the geographic center of an urban area of two million people, the bird on our roof was in fact a wild turkey.

Kate was quick enough to get some photos so I could enjoy it too.

Amazing. We're staying home this weekend. Who needs to go to the cabin for a genuine nature experience?
