baby turkey


One night in July, Elsie and I were sitting in our camping chairs in the driveway taking in the night. And then a lone baby turkey came cheeping our way, running frantically, lost and confused. I ran to tell Rory and then we were able to corner the baby against the chicken fence so that I could scoop it up.

Thankfully Elsie and I had just watched the whole turkey family walk through our yard and up the road into a neighbors driveway. So I walked the baby up the road while it cheeped for its mama. Then I heard the mama call back. Eventually I could see the mom up the path with her other babies around her and I let this little one go, trusting that since they were calling to each other, they would soon have a sweet reunion.
