Meanwhile, new life is springing up everywhere around the farm. In the barn, the mama and papa barnswallow have raised a brood of fine looking fledgings. After a couple weeks of dive bombing the barncats, they’ve left flown out on their own, sometimes returning to roost at night near the nest.
The turkeys are making their way through the pasture, cleaning up bits of corn and oats, parading through morning and evening, sometimes with little ones trailing.
Then, there are the twin fawns born in the pine grove paddock. What a smart mama to have her wee ones in such a protected area. Everyone is enjoying catching a glimpse of them now and then.
