Birds Of A Feather...Or Not



For a couple of weeks now, Cool Breeze has been telling me that there is an albino turkey living in our woods. I got my first glimpse Saturday morning. It's always exciting to see a large group of turkeys in the field, but the albino added a whole new dimension. A bright spot in an otherwise dreary weekend.


What was the bright spot in YOUR weekend?

An albino turkey! I didn't know there was such a thing.

There were a number of bright spots - blue skies Saturday, fun and safe trick or treating, EXTRA HOUR of sleep, homemade desserts.

How much longer til next weekend??

The brightest spot in my weekend was a photo friends sent and the subsequent email exchanges which left me out of breath from laughing .. I will just say: WONKY!

That is so funny. I sure do hope the other turkeys accept him for who he is and don't pick on him for being different.
My weekend was spent with my family and trying to keep my 13 year old from feeling badly about the mean girls at school.
Albino turkeys need love too. :)

Being with my family all weekend was a bright spot.

Wow! How cool is that?! My parents frequently have a flock of turkeys wander up in their yard. It's fun to watch them. I've never seen an albino one before!

WOW that is cool! I have turkeys over here too but they hang out in the kitchen looking for food!

The bright spot in my weekend was all the "laughing alot" I did with some really good friends!

That is cool is it really an albino bird? Could you get close enough to see it's eyes?

KD - Yes, it's a real bird. There are no white domestic turkeys near us, so this one is definitely a freak of the wild. I took this shot with a point and shoot from about 2 acres away, so I couldn't see the bird's eyes:( One day I hope to have one of those fancy cameras so I CAN see that kind of detail!!

Cool - I've never seen an albino turkey other than a jive turkey.

The bright spot of my weekend was the drool glistening off my chin as I simultaneously died laughing and spit out bubba teeth.

You know, what everyone does on a Friday night.

WOW! I've got a whole bunch of really big turkeys here. But, no albino!! I want one, too!!!

I've seen an albino deer but never a turkey. The bright spot in my weekend was finding the perfect top at Talbots.
So that's it. Pretty boring, I know.
