This week’s photo challenge is hosted by Something to Ponder About. The challenge is to create a post on the theme of Mistakes.
Sophie is ready and waiting. It would be a huge mistake for any bird to look for food in this bird house.
I was on my lunch hour and had just finished feeding the birds as I walked around the park. I still had about half a ziplock baggie of birdseed and was carrying it in my hand. These wild turkeys saw what I had and headed right for me. While I didn’t mind hand-feeding chickadees, downy woodpeckers, and white breasted nuthatches, I was not about to hand-feed these boys. I quickly dumped the bag and they went after the seed allowing me to pass. I would not make that mistake again, and the next time I came across the wild turkeys, I hid the bag inside my jacket.
