Mothers and babies

 Photos by BarrytheBirder
A female Wild Turkey and four chicks were unfortunately too far away for me to a get a crisp photo, even with a 300 mm. telephoto lens.   I was a bit excited however, because I'd never seen this bird with chicks so young.   They were constantly on the move, foraging in a freshly cut field.   Nearby, in the bottom photo, a mallard mother takes a break, with her ducklings on a log; once again too far away for a sharp photo.

Please comment if you wish.
