Turkey Day

November 27th, 2008 2 Comments

Today is Thanksgiving Day, so I figured that I should do a blog on the turkey that appears on our table. The Turkey we have is called Meleagris Gallopavo ( Wild Turkey, go figure ) and because of people transferring them for reasons of conservation they exist in 49 states. Turkeys look so funny (living) because they look so fat and fluffy, and suprisingly they can fly but only short distances.

Sorry, Not Much Dedication

Hey everybody,

I haven’t had much time to expand this blog because I have other priorities. Also expect a three week silence starting June 19th until some time during the first week of July(I think).

Me and my dad went to Arbor Hills Nature Preserve today and a after 10 minutes walking, I heard the Painted Bunting. We followed the sound until we saw it in a tree. We got several pictures until it flew away. We heard it at other times during our walk along with the Indigo Bunting.

This bird isn’t real(I hope). I call it a Rainbow Sparrow (Ammoddramus Colorificous) :-)

I modified the original picture using the Gimp.
