  Our spring season starts tomorrow but weather report is for rain so I don't think I will chase them till Tuesday.

   I did find a pile of feathers beside a cherry log I was moving to the mill in the pasture yesterday. Some bird did not have a good day! They looked like guinea feathers and I I first thought was a turkey chick but it is too early for young ones yet this year. It might have been a grouse but I don't see many of them here. I assume a fox or more likely a coyote or bobcat caught it. More likely a hawk. We found a more complete skeleton last year when my 10 y/o gd and i were looking for fawns and box turtles. The head was still there so i assume hawk.

I forgot when Maine introduced the turkeys. They did better than the caribou. I saw the turkeys for years about 45 minutes from me. Took them a long time to get to me. Went for a pizza one day and saw them about 15 minutes from me. The next year they was on my land.
My Dad said there was no gray squirrels here when he was growing up. Always seemed odd to hear him say that,but the turkeys are the same way. No turkeys here until about 2005?
