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.

I've never seen a hen turkey that RED in the face or that distended facially. Think you might have two toms. One may be younger than the more dominant strutting tom.
