Backyard Habitat: In addition to the birds frequenting the feeders, there also are turkeys, squirrels, toads and other things living in or passing through my yard. The Point and Shoot Gallery also includes some shots from the yard. See The Turkey Diaries for more on the flock of turkeys. Click on any image to load larger image and start slide show.
