Talking about turkeys (Wild Turkeys)...........

Crossing the bridge is a late afternoon ritual for the turkeys.  They roost in some tall trees and seem to do a lot of turkey socializing on the other side so it's home to them.


They usually walk single file across and when they get to the other side there is a bit of an incline and they run like the dickens down the incline.  Kind of like kids running down a hill.

I love these crazy turkeys.  Once in a while their schedule and the time I walk Rascal coincide and they're quite polite about waiting their turn or going ahead while we wait.  They've adapted well to living among people and other animals.  I hope they can survive us, they deserve it.     Diane

They look kind of comical,crossing that bridge. Hope they make the winter and can raise some young next year.

Aren't they lovely! This is the time of year when some people only think about turkeys for one reason. Poor turkeys.

A most enjoyable post! Your header is just beautiful! We have turkeys here once in a while, but not daily. Some years we get to watch the young ones being raised.

That is so cool Diane! They certainly do deserve to survive us. We don't have turkeys here, so this is so unusual for me to see. Do they prefer a lower elevation, because I know a lot of Idaho has turkeys, but we don't here and I wonder why that is? I love your header photo!
much love...
