Knock Knock

Recommended Posts

 

 

 

 Last spring,  we heard someone knocking at the door. Our rural home rarely gets visitors, so when we heard it,

we checked both doors and no one was there. Our Dogs were barking and convinced. I asked if she had a load of

laundry going as an unbalanced load will sometimes make some noise. Nope. We then heard it

again coming from downstairs. It sounded like someone was trying to break in through the sliding door. I sneaked down

the stairs and peeked around the corner at the door and could not stop laughing. This has been going on daily since early

spring with the addition of a local guinea fowl hen.

 

This is a vid I shot not long ago. We have a guinea fowl hen that has been hanging out with our local flock of turkeys. She's is very

bossy and  chases away the other hen turkeys from her favorite two toms, and even keeps the dozen or so grouped together. If they

get too far apart, she rounds them up like a cattle dog would.

My guess is that when these turkeys showed up at her place mid spring, she decided to go on a walkabout. She is probably someones

farm hen from within a mile or so.



In this vid, she puts up with them knocking at the door for a bit,

and then decides to break up the action. This has been going on daily since early spring.

The turkeys can see a perfect reflection of themselves,

both in the morning and again toward evening in the glass window and door,

which has them sparring with themselves. Hilarious.

This post is exactly why I don't visit here very often. One makes the effort to put a post together and this is what one gets.

Four likes. I'm old school and prefer comments,  so maybe I try again in a year or two to see if a little common courtesy

has developed. I doubt that it will as that seems to be how all forums are going nowadays.

Pushing the like button is sort of like saying, "well I like it, but I'm too lazy to type one word."   
 

It's quite the shame as I have a lot of vids and pics I could share. Your loss.   

 Hey, but thanks for the "likes."

 

 See you in a year or two maybe.

Wow! I'm 17 and I also prefer comments. Often times, though, people don't post on new topics in the Share Photos section, I think simply because it's a new topic that wasn't posted in a particular "thread". If you go to all of the top threads like Share your best photo, or LOL, etc., people commonly quote and reply to things they like.

But, truthfully, I didn't reply to your post because I'm not on here too much and I tend to stick to bird identification. I wish people would have replied, but the forum suffered a severe crash a couple years back and it hasn't been quite the same since. I can assure you, though, this isn't your average "social media". Having been here since 2015, it's a wonderful, homey place where people can have great conversations. Hope you don't give up on Whatbird!
