Here are a few wild turkeys I came across while looking for elk and deer over Thanksgiving Weekend at my Grandparents place.

Awesome turkeys. I found the deer you were looking for... I didn't know I found them until I cropped my photo and there they were in the background taking off.

I don't have any turkey photos to share...yet, but I hope to get some before too long. For some reason, turkeys are high on my list of hopeful visitors to the yard. I did surprise one on a path here once...and may have spotted them in the yard one other time, but no pictures. I'm hoping they become frequent visitors some day.

...Oh, and another one high on my list would be a fox. I'm sure the turkeys would not agree with me there.

Good! I thought this is a great time to shoot for those turkey pix! N
Ice to see them strolling through the fields!

Well, at least now people will know where to post them.

Linrose seems to have turkeys as frequent visitors. Let's see who else can capture some turkeys this fall.

Here's a favorite I just found last night on my Flickr stream. Wild turkeys were gathering around a crab apple tree outside the condo, and a couple of them flew up into the tree which was rather flimsy support for them!

I think I remember that one...but it is well worth seeing again.

Hmmm...I keep adding fruit producing trees and shrubs...I didn't really have turkeys in mind, but perhaps they'll be attracted to them as well as some of the fruit-loving song birds.

I planted hazelnuts at my last house because I read that turkeys love them. Unfortunately, I moved before the shrubs could produce so I don't know how the local turkeys actually feel about it.
