~ SNOW! ~ Crabn'eggs ~ Chocolate Covered Nuts? ~

Good 28º snowy morning!

Snow on Maggie's nose!

Breakfast was awesome. I sauteéd some grape tomatoes,
threw in some crab meat, and then when hot added
scrambled egg, salt and pepper. When done I topped
it with grated cheese. Mmmmm mmmm mmm..........

There is this one little robin who hangs around under the
Nyjer feeder. Apparently eating the seed is easier than
catching worms!

You can see she has snow on her. This was yesterday.
It snowed on and off all day, but nothing stuck for long.

So about 1pm there was all this commotion... turkeys everywhere.
The Tom were engaged in "king of the hill" competition. Taking each
other on. There were about 12 of them. They ran into the trees and
then the hens were all here too, watching the Toms, and I counted
roughly 35 of them. OMG what a lot of noise and running and
craziness.  And at the same time the snow was coming down
and blowing!

You can barely see the Toms

And the hens in the blowing snow waiting to see the outcome..

They must have settled their differences and came
out of the trees

idiot father! Duh.
