Looking right (first photo) and looking left (second photo)

That hickory tree has been leaning since hurricane Camille.(1969)
A flock of six came up the hill into the neighbors front yard. Benni has bird feeder out back and these talented feathered giants, take their bodies and tap the poles of the feeders so the seeds will rain down onto the ground.




I thought the day was so dreary, I pulled up the blinds to let in the light when I saw this flock of six turkeys between our house and the neighbors. By the time I ran into the library to get the camera they had moved away from our house but I still got a few shots out the window of them.
The kitty justice you never know what you'll see out the windows on the hill.

Sounds like those turkeys are pretty smart...knowing where the bird seed is. Nice photos!

Lady Di,

I enjoyed your photos. I haven't seen wild turkeys in a few years now, but they are around in the countryside. Each year hunters take a few home for the freezer so they can enjoy them throughout the year.

Sorry I haven't been by for a while. Life has been hectic since hubby's stroke...doctor's appointments, testing and then the boys were sick and I had sinusitis.

Wishing you a great week. Drop by when you can. I also have posted autumn photos.

Blessings,
Mary

Yep those big birds are really smart and that is why Benjamin Franklin wanted them to be used as our national symbol instead of the eagle. Peace

Sorry you have been under the weather. I too had sinus problems and had to get a z pack to get rid of those nightly headaches. I hope Dwight continues to get good reports.
Wild turkeys are to stringy for my taste. The breast is usually the best part of them just like in tame turkeys.
Peace
