I'm sorry to admit it, but I had forgotten to share this information in my last blog post. My dear friend Almita, who is a devoted birder, told me that the large black and white bird that I have posted pictures of twice now, is not a turkey, as I had thought he might be. He is, in fact a Muscovy Duck. I could not find that one in my bird book, but I have no doubt she is correct since he is happily hanging out with other ducks here. As they say, birds of a feather...... Many thanks to Almita for correcting me, and I look forward to our birding trip with her and Rueben next month so I can learn more about these graceful creatures. Happy trails everyone!
Have a great week, and stay safe, especially if you are here in California with these high winds we are having. :o)
