Cool Dude/Birding

Wild turkey walking a trail

When I first saw this dude, he looked like this. Then some female turkeys came along and...

Excited!

he looked like this. It must be spring.

U nas wiosna już jest, ale takich pięknych ptaków nie ma. Pozdrawiam.
You already spring, but these beautiful birds is not. Yours.

How do you do this? If I see a wild turkey (other than the Wild Turkey Whiskey) it turns and runs. Hmmm...maybe it's my deodorant or lack thereof?

Anni said...

How fantastic are these images?!! Shows us a bit of nature's way of dealing with Spring...the 'spring feelings' in wild turkeys!!!

I've only seen wild turkeys just a couple of times, and your photos are a treat. [no pun intended]

ouch! My grand parents had two fo tehm once when I was a kid. I was afraid of them. I´m not sure I want to meet one.

Kathy said...

Gotta strut your stuff for the girls!

Kay said...

Very nice shots with wonderful detail. (Though I think that's a face only a mother could love.) We came across a spot in California where the turkeys had hung out and found some magnificent feathers they left behind.

LONDONLULU said...

Haha, Spring has arrived even in the Great North!:) Marvelous shots, I love that strut in his step.

Michelle said...

A good looking fellow! We have plenty of those around the farm right now!

Esther Joy said...

Great pictures! We have a few wild turkeys down on the farm, but I haven't seen any lately.

Great classic photo you got there.

Just like a male in the human world. Male behavior is universal, I guess. :) The feathers and markings are so pretty here.

Stephanie said...

Looks like he was showing off.

Sue said...

That is one vain turkey!
