Scrub turkey

ristin found a scrub turkey in our yard. At first I thought it had adopted our yard and I should call wildlife services (suburbia is not a good place for scrub turkeys) but it has since moved on. Hopefully it will be okay out there. We are not far from a nature reserve but we don't normally see native wildlife out here except for possums.

That could be rather an interesting project.. a camera trap or two, set out in strategic positions. I might have to do that myself - apparently, there used to be quite a bit of urban wildlife around, but at some point, fences got put up, blocking their passage down the hillside. =:P But much of the nearby woodland remains (for now), with tiny deer and foxes around, one of which I believe I spotted on the bus back home the other week, near the crossroads at the bottom of the hill. (The rabbits, meanwhile, are having none of it, staying with select hedgerows out in the countryside)
