Turkeys

At this time of year these birds sleep in the tall pines at the edge of the pond and glide down in the morning to check the  grounds for seed and to nestle in the sunny meadow, sheltered by the woods. In the late fall and early winter, the females and younger males hang out together and the two large males swagger around on their own.
