Turkeys!

The Turkey Ladies have been around again.  I was glad to see, today, that the bearded lady is still among them.  I hadn't seen her in a while, and was getting worried.
Mr. Tom is around, too.  I can't believe he's still trying.  Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures.  He was pretty far away, and I couldn't get around the reflection in the window.

I get the biggest kick out of these guys.  One thing that you can't see from the pictures is that, with the young ones added to the mix, there is a bit of jockeying for position going on.  I wish turkeys realized how funny they look when they are acting like mini-velociraptors.   I'm trying to get a video, but haven't managed a good one yet.

Wow, that's a LOT of turkeys :)
They know where they can always count on a good buffet...
I had to smile at the picture of Mr. Tom walking away, he looks like his bloomers have been lifted over his back, with the wind :)

The pictures are great as is the quality from inside. If you went outside they'd all scatter. I've never seen wild turkeys and I appreicate your sharing them.
