These wild turkeys were in the yard when I got home today.  I only managed a photo shot when they'd started down the sidewalk.  It's common to see them out in farm fields around here but kind of odd to see them in a suburban yard.






They must feel safe because they aren't on the Christmas dinner menu.

They're mostly benign, but there are so many in my area that they eat a lot of the feed in the paddocks that I'd rather was available to my other animals! I would see at least 20 and sometimes 50 grazing in my paddocks most evenings.

They also kill themselves getting stuck in the fences from time to time, which is terrible for them and unpleasant for me. They're a big problem on the roads, too.

I posted some photos of some small ones at the bottom of this post last year.

They sound like deer here. They eat in the farmers' fields and get hit on the roads a lot. All the pictures in that post are really great. The alpacas are adorable.
