Some early morning visitors…

After doing a bedikat chametz of our house in Maine, we’re back in our home town for Pesach.

Wild turkeys on the driveway, 6:40 a.m. April 13 (click to enlarge)

While we’re away from our place in Maine, we leave a small, inexpensive “surveillance” camera set up at the window, to capture any unwanted “visitors” (of the human kind) to our property.  (My husband’s hope is to some day see a moose or bear strolling in front of the camera, but so far they haven’t cooperated.)  I wish the resolution was better so you could see more detail in this picture, because it caught the mating dance of male and female turkeys.  The male’s (the bird on the left) chest feathers are puffed out, and his tail feathers (on his left side) are displayed in a fan.  You can barely see his small greyish head on his right side.  If the camera had better resolution, you would have been able to see his long “gobbler” at his throat.  It’s quite unusual to see the male in full display mode, so I consider it a lucky shot!
