It was only a few decades ago that there were no wild turkeys here. They have made an excellent come back.

Perfect! No live ones around where I live, I'm sorry to say.

"Oh, not me!" A turkey said.

Hey, I recognize that one...ha. Great photos! Great job on getting somewhat close to them, that can be hard! I love seeing wild turkeys...and tame ones too I guess!

Donna said...

Unfortunately the wild ones taste so much better...we have them in the woods and they know they are safe! Great shots.

They're so ungainly to watch, but also fun. Terrific shots!

Great shots of these birds. I don't get to see them often but they are around here in limited numbers.

Surprisingly (to me), last year a hunter told us that wild turkeys taste good.

Birdman said...

We've got that parade of 17 turkeys that make their way through the yard about once a week. Pass the cranberry sauce...

I love seeing families of wild turkeys wander through the woods in West Virginia. Don't see them often, though!

Hopefully these turkeys will be saf as long as they stay up there.

All the wild turkeys are running into Canada where they will be safe! :)

Lowell said...

Okay, now you've done it! I shot some wild turkeys on a golf course down here a few weeks ago but I don't dare post the pictures because yours are so much better. I'd use yours and say they were mine but I think the snow would give me away! :)

I think I'm going to eat Chinese on Thursday because I'm thankful for all the work the Chinese did on our railroads back in the 19th century.

Handsome fellas they are!! I love their feathers! Wonderful captures as always and, as always, thanks for sharing the fun and beauty of your world!! I always look forward to you posts/photos! Have a great weekend!!

Ginny said...

Yes, they had better run for their lives! Actually, these are really wild, they would be too scrawny for us. Great pictures of how they look in the wild!

Looks like you've got your first snow! Lovely pictures and loooooove the caption!

RedPat said...

I really love that 2nd shot, EG! I've never seen one of these guys - I guess they don't come into the city too often. ;-)

I bet their feet are frozen!

I need a turkey shot for Thursday/Thanksgiving. Do you think these guys would like to fly south? Quickly?

Marie said...

I was hoping someone would have some turkey photos. Perfect timing! Thanks! Great photos of these lovely birds!

Margaret Adamson said...
