Turkey and 6 Poults

As we were having Dinner (our Evening Meal) on the East Deck, Richard said, "There is the Hen Turkey." We stopped eating and craned our necks. Sure enough, there she was about 150 yards out. Melanie quietly headed into the House and emerged with Binoculars. "Does she have any Poults?"

To our delight, she did. We counted very carefully and came up with 6. Richard said he couldn't say for sure but suspected the Poults were 2-3 weeks old. They were really cute, darting here and there. We can imagine that as we were having our Evening Meal, they were grabbing all the Bugs they could find.
