Turkeys everywhere!

We did buy corn for the turkeys and they are here at least twice a day to eat. Now in the mornings we hear the males gobbling. They are displaying and strutting for the females.

Here is a closeup. I can't find out anything about that cone on the front of the head. I've been doing some research online. Check out this site for more information and to hear a turkey gobble.

This guy decided to go across the street to eat at the neighbors so I only have the back view!

They are quite pre-historic looking!

It must be strange to see turkeys wandering across the yard. Our "resident" owl is back visiting us. Your coat sounds wonderful. I've never heard of such a concept but it makes sense. Is it a particular brand name.

What an ungrateful big guy! What an interesting looking bird. Wow. We get the occasional turkeys wandering through the orchard but nothing like that. So cool.
