Turkeys Entertain Us

These turkeys flew up high into an apple tree on our neighbors property and it was funny to watch them balance on the branches.

Coming in for a landing…

We’ve had several days above freezing so our snow is melting and slipping off the roofs. The icicles are melting. It’s a slushy mess around here.

Some workers here in the USA will have the day off as it’s a National day to remember Martin Luther King, Jr.

Hope you have a good Monday.

  1. I honestly didn’t know turkeys could fly! Great photos. I have today off from work so Beth and I are planning to go shopping and spend the gift cards we got for Christmas. Hope you’re having a good day.

  2. How fun to watch the turkeys. You sure got some fantastic shots of them.
    Haven’t see the turkeys around here for a while now.

  3. Your turkeys did more flying than strutting! They are quite entertaining! When we lived at the farmhouse, there were woods at the back of our property and I always hoped to see wild turkeys but we never did.

  4. Ellen – we rarely see the turkeys in the trees – they are usually roaming in “rafters” and feeding on the ground. One time I have seen them roosting in a larch (tamarack). Had something scared them into the apple tree?

    We have had a warming trend, and it’s not fun. Our unpaved roads around here become skating rinks!

    • Angie, Because their usual pecking for bugs etc. on the ground is covered with snow they were flying into the tree to find food. They were also trying to balance in some bushes where there were a few berries left. That was funny to watch, too. Oye the slushy drives have us rocking and rolling here. Our main roads are all down to pavement so they haven’t been bad. Stay safe!
