Passing Through

 Nearly every day...sometimes in the early morning hours, sometimes mid-morning, the Wild Turkeys pass through.

Usually, when I'm out first thing with Moon, they are gobbling up a storm in the woods where they bed down.

Quite often, while I'm in the woods observing the eagles, I see them parade through the brush.

As the two young males led the way, the hens followed....some closer than others.

Once they got past a big patch of herbaceous growth we leave intentionally for cover for the rabbits, they began their search for food.

just seeing, saying, and sharing...

Passing Through

the color guard leading the parade.
I always associate the wild turkeys with my Dad.....usually when we went up to see him there would be a flock in the field opposite.

JP, I love to see wild turkeys. My daughter just showed me pictures of a bunch she saw two days ago. I took pictures of her chickens today. LOL. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

Great photos!
We have plenty of Wild Turkeys here, but I rarely see the Toms displaying like that

What crazy looking birds they are - especially the males.

I suppose they feel safe at this time of year.

I see so many turkeys around the trail and even in front of my house. They are peculiar looking birds, but I appreciate them at Thanksgiving. : )
