Tommy’s Thanksgiving

Tommy, our local turkey, enjoyed his usual meal of mixed grains and sunflower seeds this Thanksgiving. I think he’s grateful that the locals didn’t put him on their Thanksgiving tables. He’s a pretty smart turkey having now figured out how to get into the hanging basket feeder. Occasionally he cleans up some of his mess under the two feeders. What a guy!

I hope all of you had at least as nice of a Thanksgiving as Tommy. :-)


Tommy has figured out how to eat from the basket feeder.



Tommy’s also pretty comfortable picking seed out of the little cup on this small birdhouse.

  1. He’s beautiful and resourceful and so glad he is still around.

      Indeed. And he’s tons of fun to watch. Now he’s getting used to us. When I go out to put some seed in that basket feeder he runs off 15 or 20 feet and wait anxiously until I turn around then he runs back and starts eating again.
