I've just returned from a Friday afternoon ride and came around one corner to see a Wild Turkey calmly eating grubs out of someone's front lawn. I've certainly never see one here in town before, though they're common in rural areas here.
And it did not move as I crept closer either! I've always thought of them as wary birds apt to flee at the first sign of people.
I've never had much success or even tried with videos, but I thought this one of a bee visiting the Redbud came out rather well. Change it to full screen if you can to watch it, much more effective.
The turkeys around here and the rabbits too run at the first sight of me!!ReplyDelete
Rabbits and turkeys are getting very used to people it seems. Cute little video. I wished it would have been longer.ReplyDelete
I have never seen a wild turkey and there was one living in the laneways around Grace st & Harbord a couple of years ago so I went searching for it but was never lucky enough to see it. Apparently people were feeding it all summer.ReplyDelete
I was up in the ravine near Casa Loma this week and thought of you.
Turkeys often get habituated to people if they're not harassed too much, we've had them in the yard a number of times. Deer like some varieties of hosta, but seem not to touch others.ReplyDelete
Great shots of the rabbit and turkey, and I also enjoyed the brief look at the bee in full size!ReplyDelete
Wascally wabbit. 😎ReplyDelete
You can make a blogger video bigger by diving into the html part, but it is a bit of a pain.
Great shots! My wild turkey pictures are always blurred because they are on the move.ReplyDelete
I'm guessing the turkey knows it isn't Thanksgiving, :p. Rabbits can be stubborn fellows, cute but destructive. Great video!ReplyDelete
Mr rabbit is not a friend to the beautiful garden! I can understand Mrs. FG.ReplyDelete
It was a critter post for you today. A Wild Turkey, a Bee, and a Bunny.. Hmmm, sounds like it could be a book title.ReplyDelete
You did have a nature filled party. Lovely pictures. Seldom do i see rabbits up here, only a couple or three sightings in our 7 years here.ReplyDelete
I used to be able to post videos but now, they don't go through. Yours is fun to watch!
hehehehe, oooooh they have such the appetite, i battle with them here as well!! the video was wonderful, it sure is pollination season, and i adore the redbuds!!ReplyDelete
I liked the video with the bee on a flower. Good job! I liked to rabbit as they are fun to see. I had one years ago but not able to have one here in town. I has to been in a cage someone and outdoors they do eat what they like and don't save it for the people in the house!ReplyDelete
