Saturday’s Critters – Gilbert, the Man, the Legend

I went on a hike last week on Turkey Mountain starting from the YMCA on the northwest side of the mountain. Best deal ever for Y members, free parking, not crowded, restrooms, water and everything else you need.

I went on my hike and as I got back to the Y I saw some wild turkeys. A tom and two hens. I posted it on instagram and facebook and a person I know with Y said the strutting tom was named Gilbert by the staff.

I only had my phone with me and he was keeping his distance so these are the best photos I could get.

In other news, our Pomeranian puppy, Kodi, is really doing well at puppy school. He’s fearless and will try anything, eager to please and scary smart. I don’t know who is training who sometimes.

As you can tell, he’s our baby now.

    always bring the good camera on a hike, but the phone actually did pretty well. i have an iphone 12, with the 3 times zoom and it takes excellent pictures. we have turkeys by our Y also, isn’t that funny. i go there often to see the deer!!

    what a beautiful dog, i get the feeling he is the boss but that he is well loved!!

    Great photos of the turkeys. I’ve only every seen them once in the wild and that was so far away. Fun to see Kodi at puppy training school. Adorable pup!

    Gilbert is a great name for the turkey. Kodi is training you too, he’s good at learning because he knows he’ll get a treat. 🙂 He is a cutie and I think he knows it.
