Turkey Time

Wild Turkey

The neighborhood turkeys are huge this year.  Seems like they were little tiny babies just a couple months ago.  I found these walking through our front yard and then again in the back of our property.   Ben doesn’t even bother to chase them anymore, although Biggs does and feels really proud of how scared they are of him.  Youtube has a process that helps get rid of the jitter from handheld with telephoto shooting, but it tends to cut off some of the top frame so in some cases the turkeys head is out of the picture.  ugh.   oh well.  Life living in the woods.

And the response from our grandkids, Ace and River

  1. Hi Geoff
    These birds are all pretty large. Do they just wander around the neighborhood trying to find food? Who owns this flock of 6 turkeys? Does anybody eat then forThanksgiving? Kind of nice photos. What kind of camera did you use for these shots? Your countryside looks nice, not really that dry. Has your dog ever actually caught one of the birds? Geoff, where do these birds actually live, somebody have a farm house or turkey pen?

    Take care of your gobblers, thanks for sending these photos although I really prefer the camping, hiking & fishing stories.

  2. I think turkey hunting season is coming up soon. I really hope none of these guys get shot. They are just too cute to watch.
