Morning walk

Most days, mornings will find me walking. This was a warm day for the end of October, with grey skies indicating rain was on the way. The wind picked up over the walk and the clouds looked ominous.

Over the course of months I’ve seen feathers on my daily walk. I’ve read about turkeys molting and it appears that they do so in late summer and early fall. Turkeys live near me and I’ve seen them off and on for years. Until this year, I’d never seen feathers. Now, the feathers make only occasional appearances so it appears the turkeys are ready for winter.

I wonder about them as the autumn advances. Heavy rains and cold temperatures must take a toll. Today as I was turning onto a side street, I looked up and there they were. I’ve seen them before but usually they are farther away. They allowed me to watch them for awhile. One seemed to be posing. They seem to like the bugs or whatever else they are finding. There aren’t any berries or other fruits that I see and I’m wondering what they eat. What I read online tells me they ook for berries, fruit, and bugs. It is more challenging to try to discern their dining habits when the leaves cover more and more of what is on the ground.

I watch them until they wander towards the woods. As I walk away a little downy feather catches the wind, landing on the pavement.
