Now that the first day of spring has arrived, some of the Myakka residents can't help but break out in song.
Once the fields are bedecked in green and no longer covered in water, turkeys can be found scouring the meadows
or sashaying through the woods scratching up any tidbits that might have been left behind.
Old friends can be found gathering at the river to once more talk about their glory days,
while some young'uns hide, hoping their long-winded distant uncle will share his glory days with someone else.
Most, however, feel the excitement that spring brings. Love is in the air and you can never look too good.
Competition is keen and figuring out what will win the heart of your soulmate is on many a mind.
Since it's early in the courting season, there's plenty of time to play the field,
and plenty of time to welcome spring whether within a group or by oneself.
The turkeys were out enjoying the day. Were you?
