The zoo that is our backyard…

By Brian | August 29, 2009 | Share on Facebook

Since we moved to suburban New Jersey, we’ve seen geese, deer, rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, and various species of birds and insects making their way through our backyard. I’ve always thought of it as both a beautiful display of nature’s variety as well as an inconvenient, and occasionally dangerous, pest problem.

That said, I’m not sure how I feel about three wild turkeys hanging out in our backyard this afternoon. When I went outside to photograph them, they made their way into the woods, so I didn’t get too good a picture (as it is, this is heavily photoshopped to highlight the turkey – damn those natural camouflage abilities of wild animals!)

Anyway, we’ll see if this guy has the nerve to show up around November…

    Cool! I’ve seen wild turkey in the foothills around the valley, but my house is too surrounded by subdivisions at this point for a lot of nature… I’m usually feeling lucky to see a hummingbird.

    @Lisa – great, between my cousin who’s ready to come over here with his BB gun and your deep fryer, we’re all set for Thanksgiving in August!

    I see an iguana with a turkey head in this picture… was this a Rorschach test?

    :-) I told you it was photoshopped!
