Oh Splendid Bird

This is Thanksgiving Day in Canada, and a very happy celebration (and feasting of course) to all of you who also live on the north side of the Canada/U.S. border. Would it not be a fine thing if we all observed this holiday on the same day of the calendar year rather than doing so almost a month apart?

No, we are not eating this gorgeous wild "tom". He was alive and well yesterday afternoon and putting on a fine splendid strutting performance on our favorite hill in the Lanark Highlands.

Happy holiday to you. I had no idea it was different then in the US.
My field is full of turkeys. May not have turkey on the table this year :)

Happy Thanksgiving! I'm glad he's still around to enjoy the season. We celebrated with tofu. :)
