Who on earth is that out on the snowshoe trail near Springside???
Why, it's our neighbours, the Turkeys!
They also dropped by the bird feeder to see what was on offer.
Every time I see the wild turkeys, I think of moose, which is not as weird as it might at first appear. The wild turkeys are descended from those obtained from Michigan in a swap for moose from Algonquin Park. While native to Southern Ontario, where they were hunted pretty much out of contention, they were never native up here. The milder winters have made Life a lot easier for them, and they are thriving.
