Last night heading home… it was easy to see that fall has hit the boxelder trees.

Willow came running over to the road as I drove in…
Whoa!
Look at that!

What ARE those things?
Guess wild turkeys are still enough of a oddity around here that they warranted a close look.

There were 15 hens and one tom.
Good odds…
if you’re the tom…

Everyone was very busy eating.
It made it hard to get their heads in focus!
I did get video… if you’re interested.

Whether they’re eating weed seeds or grasshoppers…
all I can say is “You go, turkeys!  Rah, rah, siss boom bah!”
Then this morning on my way out…
There they were again.
But this time there were *more* hens, maybe 25, and little babies!
They better grow up fast, winter is a’comin’!
