Eastern Box Turtles

We have a good many Eastern Box Turtles in our area. It seems like I have run across more this year with all the rain we have been having. It’s surprising that we have so many up on our mountain but they are there. I always thought they lived in just the bottom lands. We have several Springs and streams they seems to hang around since there are minnows and other food for them there. There are also alot of blackberry bushes around too.

Headed to the grocery store and I had not driven very far down our private drive where there was a pond turtle. I stopped and moved him out of the road. Since we have a pond near by I figured that was where he came from or was headed back too! He or she is the black turtle in the last picture.

Like watching birds? Need a bluebird house for a gift or for your garden, take a look at the bluebird houses I handmake and sell.
