Morning Coffee with the Turkeys

Last night Hawk was setting in a tree screeching,
this morning he was still at it.  Camera in hand 
and full cup of coffee, I went looking for him.

Took my time walking down through the orchard, 
he was out front by the road and I didn't want to scare him off.

As I made my way from row to row, working towards 
the fence between the Orange and the Olive orchard,
I came face to face with mamma and baby turkeys.
Not sure who was more surprised,
 but I'm willing to bet it was me, 
as for now most of my coffee was on the ground

Three hens and six babies.
Once they decided I wasn't coming for them, 
they settled back to eating breakfast and I continued on 
my way to find Hawk.

No......  no photos of Hawk.
He was in the top of a Eucalyptus tree
 with branches all around, blocking him.
I did the next best thing and headed to the house 
for a fresh cup...   Maybe next time.
