No Takers

A dark November day, 
Rainy and yet surprisingly warm for this time of the year.
The leaves continue to fall.
The birds have retreated to their nests.
The geese fly south overhead.
Squirrels busily transport their overwinter stash to secret hiding places.
Wild turkeys lead their flock to the nightly roost.
A ginger kitty sleeps.

That is a large size flock of turkeys. I didn't realize how big they are until I saw one along the road near here. My feeders seem to be not busy but I guess the seeds and fruit seeds are going strong right now. Great to see the photos.

Jo, That is a lot of turkeys. Our birds are becoming fewer...makes me so more hopping robins. Blessings for a great week. xoxo,Susie

Wow, I've never seen a flock of turkeys like that. Lovely photos for a dark dreary day. The ginger kitty looks sublime.
Our feeders are besieged by sparrows, along with the occasional chickadee, red cardinal, blue jay and woodpecker.

Any danger one of the turkeys could stay for your Thanksgiving dinner?

You have so much fall happening in your world. How we wish we could stop by for a cup of tea..
Such beautiful photos, and sweet Oliver.

Very pretty fall there. Can't believe all your wild turkeys. They are much more wary here; usually on the run. My birds have been scarce at my feeder of late: I think it has to do with the unusual weather this fall.
