Out For A Few Days

I am in the Detroit area visiting my sister. It's the first time I have ever been to this neck of the woods. I'll be back blogging probably on Tuesday.

In the meantime, enjoy this pic of two dozen turkeys that invaded my backyard at the crack of dawn on this past Wednesday.

I couldn't venture any closer because the birds must have smelled me creeping up. One large turkey took serious umbrage at my encroachment. These birds have actually been attacking people closer to Boston (link). I was told by my brother-in-law, a hunter, that to ward of turkey aggression, one must raise his arms, spread them out, and try to make himself "big".
