My new local friend (turkey)

Post by rlown » Sun May 06, 2018 8:13 pm

He's been strutting around on my pasture and the front lawn for a month now. Pretty bird. He was in the pasture and I called him in because I wanted a full regalia picture. No, I don't hunt them, I just take pictures.

Beautiful picture Russ.

Nice bird, now there are two turkeys living on your property! :D

Actually 7 (including me as you did!) :)
2 Eurasian doves, 4 woodpeckers, 7 crows, 2 bluejays, too many towhees and unfortunately 4 more cats (not mine.)

Yep. I'm expecting a new flock soon. The tom seems to have moved along but the hens are still here. 11 hatched out last year.
