Turkey in the yard!

I was glancing outside to check on the rain (it was pouring) and I saw a few turkeys sauntering through the back yard. They seemed oblivious to the rain. I've had deer and geese in the backyard, and now I can add turkeys to the list. And no, I do not live in a rural area, I live right in town, but there is a ravine close by, and I know that's where the deer come from. The others? Just passing through I guess!

1. Great photos!

I see them around here maybe three times a year..... saw them crossing the road once when I was driving .... they really do not seem to mind civilization and take their time sauntering by. But they are indeed a stunning sight!

2. Great photos, my dear Callalily!

They sure look healthy and well-fed! As well as comfortable in your yard.

They're a great sight!

3. We get them here mostly in the fall

Although I saw the first Jane Doe in awhile last night, part of the John Deer family. Also have not seen any since last fall.

Great pics!

5. They didn't seem to mind the rain

Just went about their business pecking at the ground.
