Seeded Earth Photography at Madison’s Audubon Art Fair

Turkeys "Hiking" in Owen Conservation Park in Madison Wisconsin

These turkeys were hiking on the same trail that I was traveling in the woods at Owen Conservation Park. Not that I don’t appreciate the wild turkeys, but these guys have gotten a bit too self-confident and maybe even a tad too aggressive as far as I’m concerned. I walk the trails in search of wildflowers, my eyes on the ground,  my ears attuned for any hint of a gobble gobble.

I came nearly head to head with four toms when I turned a corner, and felt a bit silly gobbling back at them while stomping my hiking stick on the path. They stared me down for a while before meandering off. Hmm, these are some birds! They sure do love hiking the trails at Owen!

I’m a big fan of the smaller birds, actually, and if you are a bird lover and in the Madison, Wisconsin area, the Audubon Society is holding their Annual Art Fair this Saturday, May 7th, 2011. It’s a great way to support the Audubon Society. And the show is perfectly timed on the day before Mother’s Day–if you are looking for a special gift for a special mom.

      They WERE happy marching in my woods–but I am never too happy to see them! Happy Mother’s Day to you, too, Marcie.
