The Turkey Ladies

I don't think that we have a different flock suddenly visiting the feeder.  I think that one of my Turkey Ladies is a Mom, and that the kids have joined the flock.  They were all up at the feeder this morning, and I got a chance to observe them for a while.  It's kind of hard to tell from these pictures, but, three of them are just slightly smaller than the others.  And, the flock behavior is the same, with Mr. Tom still "trying," the old fool.  And, you can see from the pictures that his tail isn't straight.  Hmmm, I think I'm going to have to start putting out more corn.  These pictures aren't up to par.  The window was open on the bottom  and the cat was watching intently from the chair in front of it,  so I couldn't get as close as I normally do, and the camera caught some glare from the glass.  Heaven forbid I chase the cat, though.

I'm usually trying to get shots through a film of dog nose prints, so I feel your pain!

Great shots anyway...I can't believe the Tom is still at it. Ours gave up a long while ago. ;)

Louise I think the pictures are excellent. I see a few tail feathers on the ground. Wonder if they belong to Mr. Tom.

We got a chuckle out of visual of you efforts to rid your yard of chicory.

Mom will post her first vacation pics tomorrow.
Hugs Madi

That old Tom does look a bit tilted. Maybe too much hubba hubba? You are fortunate to have your own.... flock ..... gaggle.... whatever, of turkeys!

hmmm, we never see any of those in our garden. Must be because were in a different state...?

Thanks for sharing and keep the cat away, yes... ;-)
