Turkey Nest Full of Eggs

This morning I took a walk through a valley and up a wooded hillside next to the Prairie Garden Trust. Suddenly a hen turkey walked quickly ahead and away. Sam the yellow lab followed her, but I walked back to see where she’d been and found this clutch of eggs in her nest at the base of cedar tree. So I took a quick photo and left.

About Lorna Domke

Since 1981, I've lived on the land that surrounds, and will eventually be integrated into, the Prairie Garden Trust with my husband, Henry. Our long-term goal is to build on what Henry's parents began and create a nature garden of sorts for others to enjoy. Over the years I've planted prairie, mowed trails, created a website and done whatever I could to enhance what's here. For a few years I served on the board of the Missouri Prairie Foundation. Since I retired from my role as Outreach & Education Division Chief at the Missouri Dept. of Conservation in 2010, I've started to put more time into the PGT. The PGT Nature Garden blog is one result.
