Not One. Not Two.... But Seven Wild Turkeys Parading Around the Neighborhood.


I enjoy seeing the flock wandering comfortably in our front and backyard. Before spring ended, there were only four in the flock. Nowadays, I see new young additions tagging along. 



I call this one Mr. Debonair

Nice photos.  We used to see flocks as we drove in Napa during the time we lived there.  We now see them on occasion in the hills and the wine country.  Happy Sunday!  A

How cool is that, Maria? Not something one sees every day of the week... at least not at my end! Happy Sunday.

Maria, OH MY, we rarely see wild turkeys in my neck of the woods.   I would have to jam on the brakes and take a picture!

Hi Maria,  Thanks for sharing these great turkey pictures.  I haven't seen anything like that since we moved from the country.

Hi Maria Gilda Racelis, I believe they call this a rafter.

Hello Maria - I don't recall encountering a wild turkey taking a stroll in a neighborhood where I have visited.  Nice post title.

Hello Maria, Thanks for sharing these great picture of these turkey with us.  To think that Benjamin Franklin wanted them to be the National bird.

What a fun photo, Maria!

We were visiting a friend on Cape Cod in MA a few years back and saw a whole flock of wild turkeys strolling down their road. There had to be a dozen, maybe more.
