I think these must be litter mates…so we’ve dubbed them the “twins”. They are raiding the turkey feeder. These two usually come in early. Around 4pm. I think they are trying to avoid the larger ones.
We have a fairly large coon that has been coming for a couple of years. He’s easy to spot because of his crippled paw. He’s affectionately known as “Gimp”. We don’t supply them with all the food they want..they are kind of like the clean-up committee. If the turkeys don’t come in and the squirrels have not finished it up..they get a treat.
We had so many big trees go down during hurricanes Charlie, Francis and Jean, a few years ago, that there is lots of wildlife habitat.
The pictures above were taken in early April. I took this a few days ago. He came out to see the Peacock. He’s used to seeing wild turkey at the feeder, but that was the first Peacock. I don’t throw food out when they are there. I don’t want them to associate humans with food. I would love to have them as pets but I wouldn’t be doing them any favors. They run when I come to the door or open windows, or if the dog barks and we’ll keep it that way.
