Babies on parade...

Yesterday was a lovely day in the holler.  It was rainy and the mists hovered between the hills like smoke. Evidently this all made for a perfect day for the animal moms to bring their babies out.  Before JP went to work, I looked out the front window and there were three turkey moms with their chicks feeding in the front yard.  I had never seen this before.  They usually sneak the babes up through the tallest grass they can find and hide them under a spruce tree while they eat.  We haven't been able to get out and mow because it has been raining every day so the grass in the front gets taller and taller, maybe that's why.  So, I got the camera and snapped a picture or 30!  You can hardly see the baby turkeys but here's the best ones.




Later in the afternoon, Charlie gave me his "big boy bark" and I looked out and this baby deer and his mom were in the same spot where the turkeys were.  What a delight watching this young one kicking up his heels like he was in a rodeo!  The momma deer was more guarded and scooted away to the creek when I peeked out the front door with the camera, but you can tell the little one still has his spots. awwww!


So, all that action just made my day.  What a treat to get to see these little darlings.  I hope you enjoy them too.  Blessings from the holler...

I'm smiling! That baby deer is so cute. It reminds me of reading "Bambi" when I was young.

Sending love to all in the holler,
Riley's mum

WOW!!! Great pictures of the babies! We've seen some hens and one tom, but never lucky enough to see any poults.
And the baby deer is so tiny! *squeal*

Mom was oohing and aahing about the baby turkeys, but then you should have heard her when Bambi showed up what a little doll.

Thanks for sharing - so sweet.
