    What a great picture. We had some in the winter that would come eat the sunflower seeds at the bird feeder because there wasn't much else for them to eat with all the snow we had this past winter.

    There's quite a few wild turkeys here in the Lebanon, Oregon area too! We live only a couple of blocks from the Santiam River. A newspaper article last Fall reported about 200 turkeys in the area.

    We have lots too. Our bird feeders are on a second story deck railing. They fly up and eat out of the feeders. It's a real shock looking out the window and seeing these huge birds on the railing.

    Love the pic. They are such a beautiful Bird. They frequent my house too. When the light catches in the feathers there is not much that comes close to their beauty. Enjoy them!

    PS: Yes. They are female turkeys and they are very attentive to their chicks and stay together for more than a year and then stay togther in the flock. Wonderful birds and at one time were considered for our national bird. They have many good trates. Loyal, smart, protective, gentle.
    peace

    Aren't they cool? I had 18 hens in my backyard after a hurricane once (about 6 years ago). I had fun feeding them corn. Then without a warning they quit coming in.

    We have 2 "families" as we call them. They come through every day. I took pics of them in the hurricane. They went out for lunch. :)

    I was looking at my flower garden and noticed they scratched in the one area, digging up some tulip bulbs. Bad turkeys!

    We've had to wait in the driveway for the family to cross. Love our turkey families and watching the babies grow over the summer.

    That's a great picture. Man, they are u-u-ugly! Delicious, though. My DH hopes to find some with the end of an arrow.
