Don't get your hopes up. This entry today isn't about Wild Turkey 101 proof bourbon. And I'm not going to ramble on about the meaning of the idiom 'talking turkey'. Today is all about the bird. No, not that bird. I'm talking the 18-20 wild turkeys that are spending lots of time hanging around our place these last few weeks. They've gotten to parading up the driveway, gallivanting across the back fields, investigating the mess of stray seeds under our birdfeeders and herkey-jerkeying through our back woods. Just ten years ago, I swear, I had never seen a turkey that wasn't spread out across a dining room table in late November. Now, I've got 20 or so rambling up my drive just about everyday. What's the deal with that? This hen was 'shot' through my kitchen window. Just as soon as my shutter clicked, she was running off to get with the others. Safety in numbers, I guess. Enjoy your day today. Don't be a turkey!
