I saw a hen turkey and her 4 or 5 young ones today in Ohio. They were smaller than an adult quail. For August I would have thought they would have been bigger. Perhaps the first set of eggs got discovered and eaten and she had to start over.
I had a 5 feet diameter Sycamore tree too big to cut on a large sawmill band saw. Supposedly they use some type of black powder device that split into quarters and then it was small enough to fit on the saw. Wonder if it was something similar?
