Turkey Crossing



We seem to have a lot more turkeys in our area this year. There are two spots that seem to be the designated Turkey Crossing!

We always stop and wait for the mama and babies to cross the road. This time I was lucky enough to have my camera. Unfortunately, not the greatest shot, they spook easily and run for cover the minute the window goes down.

Can you see me?

It is nice to see the turkey population growing. We have seen evidence of them in our woods, but never get a chance to get an up close look at one.

Random Turkey Facts:

Benjamin Franklin wanted the Turkey to be the United States National Bird.

Wild Turkey live to about 10 years old.

Wild Turkeys are smarter than domesticated Turkeys.

    1. I have never raised Turkeys, but I have read just enough that scared me off!

  8. We have been seeing more and more around here too. And more deer. I'm glad the season is about to start so we can take care of the family of deer attacking my gardens.

    1. We have an abundance of deer as well. We see them in the hay and soybean fields. Thankfully they stay out of the yard. I think the dogs keep them away.
