Turkey Visitors

 I had a surprise visit from about 25 turkeys this morning.  They were attracted to the bird feeder and picked up the seeds that had fallen on the ground.  What strikes you when you're near a flock of turkeys is just how big they are.  Wouldn't want to be up close to an agry one.

Although the one to the right here actually has a friendly face.
 On the other hand, this one looks pretty no-nonsense

About five of them struck out on their own .
This one stopped for a rest.  It was pretty windy and  the feathers on her back are getting ruffled.

 Surveying the lay of the land.

 A turkey thinking.

The turkeys stayed for quite a while, but eventually I let our dog out and he chased them off.
