It was late July and the apple tree was dropping small green apples. Deer and rabbits, fox and coyotes and bear were visiting in the night to eat the fallen apples.
At twilight two hen turkeys and their broods came to pick insects from the grass in a small opening in front of the camera trap. The different sizes of the turkey poults shows that one brood was younger than the other. The turkeys were peacefully going about their business while a white-tail fawn nibbled at leaves on a shrub.
The fawn’s mother came to eat, including some of those little green apples, and the fawn began gamboling through the grass –
Towards the end of the video the doe looks at the fawn chasing the turkeys as if to say “Stop bothering the neighbors.”
