Talking Turkey

This was a picture I was thrilled to get in June of last year.  Of all the turkeys we have
in our neighborhood these are the first babies I ever saw.  There were
nine of them and they all survived.
Here they are a few months later with their mother nervously watching for predators.  She continued until they got as big as her and I couldn't tell which was her.  Maybe she still does. 

I love these wild turkeys that freely roam our neighborhood.  They're very funny characters as well as quite peaceful souls. 

We will not be having turkey for Thanksgiving.  We will be having something else and I will go for a walk with Rascal and laugh at the turkeys and it will be a good day.                  Diane

I'd be having something else, too, if that little family lived in my neighbourhood!

Are the wild turkeys protected there? I definitely won't be having turkey or any kinda meat for Thanksgiving. But I think definitely will need some pumpkin pie. :) Best wishes, Tammy

Oh you are just so sweet! I certainly can understand your feelings. They are precious and you know I have never seen a baby turkey. Thanks for the pic! Kit
