Things were going so well and then suddenly they weren’t in TurkeyLand,
Every morning the turkeys come marching through the woods and cross our property headed North. Most of the time it’s a peaceful, many times entertaining event.
This morning for some reason things were tense and hopefully one of you turkey experts out there can tell me what was going on.
The second half of this video makes me think of when giraffes fight with each other, wrapping their necks around each other. If you can help me solve the mystery, please do.
The clarity of this video is terrible, my apologies. I haven’t replaced my tripod yet and holding a heavy camera and long lens is definitely not ideal.
I thought I was all alone…but I hear the unmistakeable galumphing of a Velociraptor.
THERE IT IS!
Don’t get me wrong, I might be a little nervous but not enough to stop eating.
Yep, I’m sticking my tongue out at you, you don’t scare me.
Where did you come from?
What are you doing? You’re getting too close.
Stop stalking me! You’re weird, I’m leaving.
I SAID I WAS LEAVING, CAN’T YOU SEE ME RUNNING? DON’T PECK ME WITH THAT BEAK OF YOURS!
I gave you last night to cool down, came back to have my breakfast of sweet new greenery and you do THIS to me? I didn’t bring my buddies with me to intimidate YOU, this is just not fair.
My apologies for the image quality, I took this from a distance with my phone.
Please forgive the shaky video, but for those of us who used to watch WKRP in Cincinnati…we were led to believe that turkeys can’t fly. They were wrong.
Turkeys in a tree
I’m counting more than three
So high up there
Without a care
How brave they all must be!
