I noticed this turkey standing, or lurking, at the back of the yard the other morning. It remained in this spot for at least fifteen minutes. It didn’t even take a few steps one way or the other. Most of the wildlife I see, don’t remain in the same spot for extended periods of time. I wondered if there might be babies nearby. I’ve never seen any before, but this bird seemed like it was “on guard”.
Today was the big reveal. I glanced out the window and there they were, an entire turkey family! I was really excited to see them and to have proof that the turkey was lurking for a reason.
