The Turkey Ladies are Back and -------

They brought a man!
He obviously thinks that he's quite the handsome dude, but, the Ladies don't seem very impressed.



Oh well, it's early yet.

LOL that is hilarious...strutting his tail feathers for sure....

Oh my gosh I think my first day of retirement is going well. However, Madi and her Dad have given me demerits....
Tough snuff I'm here to stay,

Wow! What a beautiful collection!

Ooooooo! He's beautiful! Our turkeys down here are very careful about not being seen so it's rare to see a nice strutting Tom.

Dar said...

And a right handsome dude he is. Soon is spring mating season and his ladies will be following.

Huh!? are they blind or what?

Sandy ~~~ said...

Oh, he loves himself huh? Let's see if he can put his "money" where his beak is!

Janet said...

He is such a handsome fellow - the ladies seem to be playing it cool though ! while he struts his stuff !

Jim said...

He's going to be one busy fella! Better stock up for next year, I predict additions to this 'flock'!
Thanks for 'lead' re Red polls. I've subscribed to Cornellbirds.com.
Great photos by the way.

What a great sequence of photographs. They really made me smile. He certainly is a handsome feller, and you're right - the ladies barely spare him a glance. (Yet.)

What great pictures Louise!! If those girls aren't impressed, I am--He must've known he was going to be posted on the internet and wanted to look his best!! :-)

Isnt he wonderful. How great will the day be when they bring in little ones!!!

SageGgrouse hens do this too. The male gives his all and they just seem to stroll around like they are browsing at Nordstroms and not finding anything to grab their interest.

Dreaming said...

Oh, those guys, always trying to show off their manliness!

Sharon said...

Hmmm.... Maybe, they were impressed BEFORE they showed up and they thought he needed something to eat to gather his strength?

Canyon Girl said...

He is beautiful. And what fun to have such large birds in your yard.--Inger

KB said...

I love those photos. Wonderful!

Liesl said...

Samantha said...

Our girls just came back yesterday and brought a tom with them. Much like your girls, they didn't seem impressed!

chook said...

and even if those girls aren't impressed with all the puffery, i am!

Wow! What a bird ... never saw anything like it :)

Terry said...

Oh my word! He's gorgeous! I love those stripped side feathers.

Sheri said...

How utterly charming, to have a male displaying in your backyard!

Vicki Lane said...

Beautiful! I wish our turkeys would come a bit closer to the house.
