Nest Hunting

Uploaded by: Doesiedoats

Saturday May 25, 2013

Williams, OR (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: SilverBeaver went out to feed the livestock....back to house...knock on window. Turkeys, get camera! These two were in the paddock, but moved to the upper area of our West pasture. I followed them up and took 126 shots of this courting.

Such an excellent series, Julia -- I've seen flocks of wild turkeys many a time, and sometimes even the males displaying like this, but never close enough for a decent shot. Congrats on your AC for this great photo of this magnificent bird!

Thank you so very much, Maxine.

I was lucky that my husband had seen
them in the paddock when he went out
to feed.

Thank you Suzi!

Yes, it was quite a treat to be able to
watch and photo. They paid me no attention,
so I was free to move closer without disturbing
them in the least.

The Toms have been strutting their stuff in my yard as of late too. So far, I didn't notice a whole lot of interest from the 'fairer' sex.
