In search of Tom by the Albion River
- This is unusual to say the least. Wild Turkeys down by the Albion
River at the Albion Field Station. Yesterday, Sunday one lone hen
meandered thru camp late in the afternoon. Direction of travel was
from the River southward up along our canyon creek. Today, Monday She
was back with two hen friends. So far no Tom's have been observed.
This is definately not turkey habitat. I've seen them in north Fort
Bragg and again in Anderson Valley, we know them to be on the coast
but not along this section of the coast and river. How did they get
here (one step at a time my husband said) but Why?
The Albion Field Station is the marine biological field station for
Pacific Union College. 3 miles north of Hwy 128 and Hwy 1
intersection is Albion. Take Albion Street from the Market down to
the Albion River and that is where the field station is located.
I also have been noticing the return of the Allen's Hummingbirds for
the past week.
