Almost Wordless Wednesday: Two Turkeys


We really don't have much to say, but these two have gobbled gobbled gobbled their way into our hearts. Whenever we walk past them, they puff up their feathers, make their beautiful display, and sing their song to us. We reply, "We have no food for you, but we do think you are very beautiful."

  1. Wow! They are magnificent! Our wild toms are similar, but not as showy.

    1. bev-- This is a little fenced in space that has had the alpacas (now in a bigger place), our favorite goat Billy (also in a bigger place), and now these fine turkeys. There are several hens as well.

  3. They ARE beautiful! They look huge, but I'm sure some of that bulk is feathers.

    1. Steve-- We love watching them puff out like this. When we first approach they are not so bold, and their tail feather are not fanned. Then they show us all their feathery beauty.

  5. When I was a kid and the turkeys did this display it was time to get out of there. If you hung around they would chase yow.

    1. Red-- These guys are in a fenced enclosure. I think and hope we are safe. I often say to them, learn to fly away and go... go...

  6. They are beautiful but Red has a point. I have been turkey attacked and it is hard to know how to defend yourself. Running is best.

    1. Patti-- I sure hope these guys don't attack, but we are definitely and always on the other side of the fence from them.

  9. Beautiful! I like their song, too.

    Maybe I've told this story before, but I want to tell it again. When my nephew was a tiny boy, he visited his grandparents in Gualala. One day he looked out the window and saw several wild turkeys. In delight he shouted, "Mama, there are dinosaurs outside!!!"

  10. 'O' Diner on the hoof. Well they are safe with me because I don't like turkey, I find it too dry. Chicken on the other hand has no chance. They are a couple of nice looking birds

    1. Billy-- Yes, they're safe with me too. They really are quite beautiful.

  11. They are indeed amazing. We have lots of wild turkeys visit our house to glean the dropped seeds from the birdfeeders. We get the occasional tom, but they are nowhere as beautiful as yours.

    1. NCmountainwoman-- It's lovely to see them all puffed and looking beautiful like this. We don't have any wild turkeys here, but I bet the toms are pretty striking as well.

  12. When I saw this photo, Robin, I first though yes how beautiful this pair is to see and then, hope they won't attack. But then in reading previous comments I learned about the fenced enclosure, so you are safe to "shoot" and share.
