A Rafter of Turkeys

It is a rainy day in November and I am thinking of turkeys.

At our old office I would often see turkeys. Especially if I got to the office early when teaching a course. The wild turkeys would often be out for their morning foraging.

Tonight I will share some pictures from several years ago.

I am actually surprised that I have not seen turkeys at the new office yet, as it is not too far away from this spot.

I though that this picture was quite interesting. It looked like the top of one of the reflected trees was on fire, but it is a reflection of one of the parking lot lights that was still on.

We also have some wildlife at our new office since we had to retain some of the wetlands around our building. Some mornings I arrive to birds singing from the wetland.
