Today, we saw a flock of 20 turkeys in a field on the south side of Pinehill Road north of Fowlers Corners. These turkeys put on quite a show with several of the toms displaying their tails and vivid blue heads. As we were driving by the pond on Sawyers Creek where it comes into the Otonabee, an Osprey swooped down and dove into the pond. As we drove by Trent U a Cooper’s Hawk flew across the road and landed in a tree about 50′ in. And we saw a Porcupine in a tree to boot at another spot!
