Little Creek Maple Farm

Our adventures around the homestead.


Well it was a typical weekday morning. I headed out to load the Honda up with my bag and Billy’s lunchbox when what did I see as I reached the car, but a couple of turkeys staring back at me!

Turkeys at the Honda

Fortunately for me, I was able to sneak back to the house and get Billy who was finishing putting on his coat.  We quickly went out side and were able to get a good 5-10 minutes observing the Turkeys up close before they realized my three-year old had other plans.  As the Turkeys headed for the hills Billy figured he would cut them off at the pass.  We ran to the side yard and Billy chased them into the patch of woods behind our house.

For some reason the quality of photos from the iPhone has gone down recently.  Maybe it was the low light and operator error, but I am blaming it on iOS 5.0.1

This is the first time we have had turkeys cross the yard, and the closest I have gotten Billy to them.  There has been a good flock of 20-30 turkeys that we have followed around our area and stopped to watch from the truck, so this was a great experience.

  1. Over the summers, we had a single female turkey wander into our yard a couple times. She looked like she had lost her flock and seemed confused. She wouldn’t move away from us and would wander right up to the house. We haven’t seen here for a couple months. This was the first wild turkey that I’ve EVER seen.

    • Growing up in Maine I never remember seeing turkeys when I was younger, but in the last 5 years the population really seems to have rebounded and you see them everywhere in New England. Its been a great opportunity to introduce my oldest son to wildlife. Too bad they never seem to be around in a shootable area when hunting season comes around!
