This weekend, I have been splitting time between sites- one of my part-time underlings started a full-time job a few weeks ago, and he has been unable to get to his (now) second job at his original hour. Because we have different visiting hours at our different sites, I start my Saturdays and Sundays at his typical worksite while he starts an hour later at mine- then I take up the baton from him when he finishes and work the rest of the night. Confused? Yeah, I'm not quite used to it and I suggested this juggling act. Did I mention that we're understaffed and Home Office doesn't see fit to address that issue.
Anyway, the site that I start off at on the weekends has a large wild turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) population- I once saw a flock of twenty-one turkeys making its way across the property. Today, I had the privilege of seeing one of the birds, a large male, through the window of my building's back door:
Longtime readers will know that this isn't the closest I've gotten to a "wild" turkey, but this is the closest I've gotten to one that was truly wild.
