More Animal Pictures…

I realize this post may seem like a rehash of my animal pictures I posted last week. However, we went to both Stoney Creek Metropoark and the apple orchard with the animals again. At Stoney Creek, we saw wild turkeys in almost the same spot we did last time! There were five turkeys total. I was asking Rob if he thought we’d see turkeys again and he was being silly as usual and starting making turkey noises (we were driving mind you) and not more than ten seconds later, I yelled “THERE THEY ARE!” and spotted them in a field.

We also went and saw Crow yesterday. I blogged about him back in July. During the day, he lives outside in a fenced-in area (more like deck railing fencing) next to the Nature Center at Stoney Creek. At night they bring him inside in his pet carrier so he isn’t harmed by other animals. He had a broken wing that I guess never healed properly so he is unable to fly. Crow is quite “talkative” and is always making sounds when you go visit him.

We bought the cups of animal feed at the orchard this time. Last time we went, they didn’t have any machines with animal feed and it was not clearly marked you had to buy it at the cashier in the store area.

We saw one sheep head-butt another one to keep it away from Rob’s hand full of feed. There was a really cute small brown baby goat but it was getting pushed around by the other baby goats. Rob distracted the other goats with some food and I was able to feed the small brown goat. As you know from my post yesterday, we also fed the llama.

There was one crazy thing yesterday. They were cleaning some of the animal pens and one of the fenced in turkeys got out and was roaming loose. So we actually saw six turkeys total yesterday roaming freely about! (five wild at the park, and this one) I didn’t take his picture because I didn’t want to upset it, well that, and I didn’t want the turkey to chase me down or something!!! I was holding a cup of feed after all. Luckily, the turkey let us be.

And we also saw nine deer, including a buck yesterday. Saturday was definitely a good day for seeing animals!!! I wasn’t able to get a picture of the deer though.

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend!!!

    It is like deja-vu. Glad you had another nice time at the farm though. It looks like a great way to spend the day.

    i am in love with all those animals!

    Emmy, i love that you went back! And Rob is such a sweetie to get the bullied baby goat away so he could feed him (her?). You two are so wonderful.

    Happy you blogged and posted another photo of your Crow pal. I think the first time you posted about the bird was when i found your blog and i was so moved that since then, i’ve made your site my first visit when i’m on the computer.

    So glad you are so loving and caring and compassionate. It warms my heart big time…

    Great to see the great animal shots.

    I never knew there were still wild turkeys around, thought they were extinct.

    I am so glad turkeys are not popular to eat here in South Africa and many are kept rather like you would a peacock, running around the garden.

    Those goats are adorable! Beautiful pics!
