Guess who is awake!!!!!!
Yup, after another long winter’s sleep, the box turtle member of the flock has finally decided to put in an appearance!
Two flock members were fairly un-moved….but the large featherless flock member was over the moon to see her boy again!
This is the second year Bruce has been with us, and his second hibernation with us as well.
I was really, really nervous when I started seeing all these Instagram posts about other people’s box turtles waking up and coming out of hibernation. Yesterday morning I headed outside to check on the shells as usual and noticed Bruce’s little in-habitat pool had some dirt in it.
Aha. Where there is pool dirt there is usually a box turtle. And there was!!
This starry-eyed mama loves her boy soooooo much!! <3
