Girls Will Be Girls

Watching the young females, I wondered where the boys were.  Wouldn't you?


A few weeks ago, I showed you some photos of young jakes hanging around our feeders near the woods.  Today, you're seeing ONLY young females, better known as "jennys".  In the late Fall, jennys join a flock of mature female hens.

I found it interesting, like many other species, that the young don't hang around together.  Togetherness only happens during breeding season.

seeing, saying, sharing...

I think maybe these turkeys are on to something. Just hang with the girls
I knew of jenny wren but not jenny turkey. They look quite happy without the boys around!
Nature must have designed them this way, for a reason.
