The remains of a turkey. First I saw the wing, then the trail of feathers. Circle of life!

Oh, I see. Then good for you to be able to see one in the back yard...whether it is marsh or not.

The second picture is so much more powerful than the first--I guess I mean I didn't realize they covered such a large area. Great photos.

Very cool! I've never seen herons nesting before.

Could it have been a fox that took it?

I don't know - There were no other traces but it appears it was devoured near where all the feathers were.

Yesterday I saw a Rose-breasted grosbeak at the feeder. He must be making his way to his summer grounds up north. We used to see them frequently in Vermont but this is the first one I've seen since we've been in Kentucky. Such a striking bird!

Hubby said he saw a wolverine in the yard. I find that hard to believe but you never know...I see a fox visiting every now and then. After all I've been feeding the crows din din scraps for quite some time. It was only a matter of time before one meandered close enough to get a sniff.
I worry about the eagles picking up my pooch in the daytime. Now, I fear for my little doggies life at night as well.
