A neighbor came over to let us know that some turkeys were moving through our block this morning. There they were, about a dozen of them, grazing in a neighbor’s yard and generally ignoring everybody around them. I was able to get pretty close to them and snap the photo above without interrupting them.
After about five minutes, they moved on across the street heading towards the next block. We sometimes get wildlife moving through the area. I have seen deer before, but never turkeys so close. It was a joyful start to the day.
