Cool chick!

I found this fluffy little chickie pecking around in the duck's pen yesterday afternoon. Looking for any grain the ducks may have left, it is welcome to it. The chick is a young brush turkey. They are quite independant from the time they hatch, fending for themselves.

A pretty moth (in our shed).
The rainy weather is back again, which is good in a way, - it will top up our remaining water tank. And it is nice to sit and stitch, and have a big cup of hot tea to sip on.......might even light up the wood heater to dry the house out a bit.  With all this wet weather, there is a lot of humid air about.

Lovely to have nature all around you - did you let the little chick carry on his merry way?

Ok, he is seriously the cutest thing I have seen all day!!! I would have been soooooo tempted to have kept him!! What did the ducks think?
Love the moth too, it is an emperor (spelling?) moth. Here's a link I just have to share!! A coucal chick! I've managed to get a picture of an adult, but not very good. You hear them all the time, but can never find them! Link -

That chick certainly looks unfazed and content.
I think there are benefits to cooler, even rainy weather- a good excuse for sitting stitching with a cuppa.

Is a moth different from butterfly?

Lots of interesting wild life up your way! Enjoy the cooler weather - we are having the hottest march for years.
