A day for the birds.

Was riding up Island to the ferry. Was a few minutes early, and the road was wet, so no hurry.
A couple of miles up, two Canada Goose take off from the ditch in the side of the road. One of them flew about three feet off my right elbow, before peeling off.
Further up the road, an orange shafted flicker, flew out of a field, and then about two feet in front of my windscreen. Did that for a while before flying off.
A more rare flicker is the yellow shafted bird.
Further up the road is a turkey, standing in the middle of my lane. I road up to him for a chat, but he was more interested in showing off for the girls on the side of the road. He did his show off thing, while I told him to get out of the way, which he finally did with me waving the front wheel at him.

Later I picked up some bits for the boat, and picked up my completed tax return. I now identify as broke.
Got a new phone too, as mine was doing silly things. UK

Before she passed on my mother lived in a place that had wild turkeys, unsurprisingly the old ladies there (including mom) fed them constantly, I never saw suck big ones before in my life .

At suset they'd laboriously fly up into the trees ~ I'd never seen a turkey fly and didn't think they could .

Good to hear feral pigs are getting some winnowing out ~ they're a serious nuisance
