The Fox and The Turkey Hen

Sometimes, when you live in “the woods” you get to witness wild animals in their natural environment. Earlier this week I was able to observe (and snap some photos) of our resident fox hunting our resident flock of turkeys – toms (males), hens and chicks. It was about 6:00 a.m. on a cool misty morning; we sat quietly and watched as we sipped coffee.
