Early Spring at the CNP

At our backyard birding spot, the Callaway Nature Preserve (CNP), we get a fair amount of birds especially in Spring. A couple days ago we had some torrential rain that left the yard a flooded, muddy mess and has attracted a small army of American Robins.

Of course, robins aren’t unusual this time of year but a truly odd sighting was a group of three Wild Turkeys that wandered into our neighborhood. This is only the second time we can recall seeing a turkey in our cul-de-sac, unless you count neighbors 🙂
