Feeder Birds

We tend not to load up the feeders this time of year as food is readily available. But when we noticed that the local Prothonotary Warblers had started to visit them, we put some food out. Although warblers are insect and not seed eaters.

And sure enough this morning we had warblers in the garden and at the feeders.

And then these came a calling.

Wild Turkeys.

Wild Turkeys are frequent visitors to the yard, but I'd not expect them to make use of the feeders. Yet here they are.

Of course they scared away the warblers and other little birds. And the turkeys made several visits, in groups of two and three. Sometimes all together, sometimes apart.

And of course we've stocked the feeders with turkey chow.
