Wow! Wild Turkeys!
Two of my fellow bloggers, Ronna and Natalie, have posted blogs about seeing wild turkeys recently. Now it is my turn. I was driving down the road from my home this past Sunday (going to town to get some more medicine for my wretched cold - all sympathy welcome!) when I saw something in my neighbour's field. I came to a screeching halt (one of the advantages of driving in the country is that you can stop in the middle of the road and not worry because there is no-one behind you) and realized it was a flock of wild turkeys. There must have been about 20 of them.
I got out of the car to see if I could get closer and take better pictures. But they were skittish and started to run away.............
..............leaving only one straggler. This is the first time I have seen such a large group of them close to my home. Ah, the excitement of country life!
