Barnyard escape!

It was hard to pick which of the dozens of photos I got of these turkeys to post... this one shows them as they approached my car. I snapped away for a second more but then started to feel a bit alarmed as they were coming straight at me - I rolled up my window and kept on shooting. I think they were domestic, not wild, on a little outing! Posted by Picasa

They look hilarious at this time of year - their heads are bright blue, they have long fleshy things called "snoods" hanging down over their beaks, and I wish I could play you the little video clip I took of them gobbling all together!

This is so funny! They look like they've started their 'No Turkey at Thanksgiving' Protest early this year! ;)

Just stumbled over your blog in a comment elsewhere, and what do I find... a blog from the old home. I'm out on the West Coast now, where I was born just after the last mammoth passed, but I grew up in Connecticut, Riverside to be precise. We used to come up to Sharon for church retreats. I loved it up there.

But enough about me :)

Nice shooting, I'll be back.

What a great photo. Here in Missouri I see them often but they are VERY shy. Turkey are the hardest bird to hunt becuase they can see color, making them very smart. Thanks.
