Turkeys Came to Visit Again

Since that first sighting of eight turkeys there have been five more of five, eight, four, seven and six turkeys. During the last visit they came into the yard from the field, and I snuck out the back door with my camera. I crept back and forth on the back deck without seeing the turkeys I'd seen from the windows. Then I followed tracks 'round to the front and there they were. I got these photos and then imagine how I felt when I discovered the tracks went right up to the front door with it's full length glass windows. My son saw the turkey through the door from inside at a distance of about twelve feet, and I missed it!

This one got nervous enough to decide to fly, and I tried to get a picture of it before it got away. I guess I didn't really succeed. It didn't fly more than a few feet. Both turkeys eluded me in the sparse little trees. All I found were tracks headed back to the river. Turkeys
