On our drives around the Old Mission Peninsula, one of our favorite spots is Brinkman Road. Not only has the road and landscape not changed at all in either Tim’s or my lifetime, but you can always count on seeing some type of wildlife roaming around out there.
Yesterday, I posted a photo of some deer. Today, it’s turkeys. There’s usually a few Canadian geese in the fields and orchards there too. And when the weather gets warmer – notice I said when and not if – it’s a favorite spot for the Sandhill Cranes. Here’s a few from last September.

The turkeys were pretty funny as we tried to take a photo of them – they were in the orchard and, of course, we were in the car on the road. Every time we pulled forward into their row of trees, they would scurry to the next row of trees. So it was like a little back-and-forth game with them pulling the string on these human puppets in the car. I did manage to get some acceptable pics of them in the process.
