An Immigration of Turkeys

No wonder legend has it that Ben Franklin wanted the turkey to be the national bird. This guy is so beautiful!

The local flock made there way through the neighborhood Sunday. We all went out to watch including a little boy who commented

“Look, Mom, the turkeys are immigrating!”

Interesting idea, I though, No they are the natives and most of the rest of us are immigrants!

Handsome couple out for a Sunday Stroll. Doing the Turkey Trot  perhaps.

The youngsters are pretty smart they know to stay in the cross walk.

  1. My husband, who is an avid outdoorsman, and I saw a flock of wild turkeys at Big Sur a few years back. He’d never seen one before. He looked at me, puzzled, and said, “What the heck are those, mutant herons?” He now swears he was joking, but I’m never gonna let him live that one down!

  2. wonderful photos…you seem to write that it’s normal to be “Immigrated” by turkeys through your yard and town…Is that not unusual??? just wondering…
    We have them here in KY as well…but, usually in fields…along the road…or near a patch of woods…

  4. Sorry you had the flu. I was wondering about you when I didn’t see any posts. I was down about two weeks but it ended up being a really bad Sinus infection. I guess it’s tougher on us older folks. lol
    There are a lot of wild turkeys down in this area. And especially up around Yale. We always see them when we go south of Yale to the farm. Hey, glad you doing better!!!!!
