Backyard Turkeys

These 5 gobblers are regular visitors, as is a larger groups of hens and young turkeys. It may be due to this year’s super-abundant acorn crop, but we have never seen so many turkeys hanging about and cruising the woods. One bunch roosts in trees on the north side of the stream bed, and when I spook them walking by, the loud noise from their wings as they take flight is startling.

I halfway expect them to fly over the fence and peck at their reflection in a sliding glass door.
