Not Quite What I Expected!

Whenever I go into my kitchen, I find myself looking into the backyard to see what's going on. Today I spotted the neighbor's white cat sleeping on our woodpile. It was drizzling out, and he could take a nap there without getting wet.

Later in the afternoon, I peered out and sure didn't expect to see a rafter of turkeys. I didn't know it was a rafter until I looked it up - it just looked like a whole bunch of big fat turkeys to me!

One of them was even inside the fenced area! I ran to get the camera, and tried to quietly go out on the deck, but they must have good hearing because the minute I started to take the picture, they ran into the woods! If you click on the picture, you can barely make out a couple of the birds!

We've seen turkeys before in our yard but not this early into fall. Did you see anything interesting in your backyard today?
