Male Wild Turkey

Male wild turkey showing off to the girls outside
our cabin window. They also come for the
sunflower seeds I put out on the window sills,
just as the birds, the squirrels, the chipmunks,
even the deer, and sometimes a mouse.

It's too funny to watch the squirrels burying
their stash of seeds for winter and then the
turkeys come and scratch them all up. :-))

Well, the squirrels don't need to stash --
there's a year-round supply of sunflower seeds
on our window sills ...

    It sounds like a nice place to live too, so close to nature.
    Well captured and presented.

    speaking of being brave, and just to talk turkey ; )): male turkeys are a lot scarier to me than swans!!!! when i was about 4 years old my parents took us kids to a petting zoo that had an enclosure with two "tame" turkeys in it. i walked up to the male to pet him, and he mock-charged! schock fürs leben ; ))! to see them in their natural habitat must be just wonderful, though! beautiful shot of an impressive and imposing animal! greetings, sabine. p.s. this morning a tiny mouse showed up at my rabbit "service station". so i know what you're talking about ; ))…

    Hi Jutta
    Great picture,
    If they come so close to your cabin then they must be more or less tame.
    And it looks like it's a lot of them?
    Have a wonderful day,
