Talking Turkey

Yesterday morning I woke to find a large gobbler in the yard displaying all his plumage.

I took the ipad camera out onto the deck steps, and he did not spook at all.

Here’s what occurred:

I finally saw the hen he was courting.  She was up the hillside in the woods, blissfully feeding on something in the dead leaves and ignoring him completely.

Ha!
