Readers’ wildlife photographs

We have a readers’ wildlife appropriate for Thanksgiving today (see the first photo). These four pictures were sent by reader Garry VanGelderen from Ontario, Canada. And readers: be sure to keep those photos coming in!

Garry’s notes are indented:

Wild turkeys, Meleagris gallopavo (Penetanguishene, ON):


Snapping turtle (Chelidra serpentina) at Wye Marsh Conservation Area (Midland, ON):


Snow bunting, Plectrophenax nivalis, male (Penetanguishene, ON):


American black bear (Ursus americana) on John Island (North Channel, Lake Huron):

    Excellent! The turkeys are really magnificent birds. We see them around here frequently, but they never cease to impress.
