Got a call from a friend of mine-he has a hen turkey nesting 15 feet from the back wall of his house-he found her when he almost stepped on her. She's got 9 eggs, here's hoping all 9 hatch. Hindsight being what it is, I should have backed way off and gotten a picture showing surroundings. Imagine a fully mowed yard, with a cluster of three trees in the middle, about 10 feet wide.No cover whatsoever except for the weeds between those trees. The trees make the weeds unavailable to mow, he had planned to use weed killer-those plans have been cancelled.

Trust me, we share plenty of those!:-):-) I should re-process the photo, I cropped it too far and lost some quality-I was in a hurry when I posted it and fed up with the computer(nothing was working that night). That, and I should go for more shots in the morning-based on when we think she laid the eggs I have about 2 weeks left to go back. The only thing that saved this from being severely backlit was the shadow of his house.
