Lets talk turkey!

You might think from the first picture and the background that I was at a turkey farm.  But take a look at the second picture and you will see I was at a lumber company.  This is actually on a busy two lane road.  I had to turn around and park the car because this was just too cool.

I have seen many hens in my day, roaming the fields and sometimes, backyards.  But this is the first time I saw several toms or gobblers.  They look like what we used to draw in grade school.

The other cool thing is that the gobblers don’t have a bounce in their step.  They simply glide along and appear to be floating across the grass.  There were three tom turkeys to nine hens.  You do the math!
