We had first-time visitors to our backyard this morning! I apologize in advance for the lack of clarity in these photos, but I was zooming (didn't want to move and scare them) and snapping through the screen on the patio door.
A hen and her young!
Although turkeys were frequent visitors in our yard in lower Michigan, and we've occasionally spotted them in the Keweenaw, we've never seen them on our property. The local turkey population is said to be increasing, so we hope to see more in our yard in the future.
Oh, our bear was back on Saturday night. Just happened to turn on the floodlights, and there it was.
All is well in the Keweenaw.
