A lone wild turkey walks through the field near the house.
“After long experience, I am convinced that the best place to study nature is at one’s own home, — on the farm, in the mountains, on the plains, by the sea, no matter where that may be. One has it all about him then….The wild creatures about you become known to you as they cannot be known to a passer-by.”
John Burroughs,"Nature Near Home"
Field and Study (1919)
