Gobble Gobble Gobble Gobble

We were over run with Wild Turkey's this morning!

I counted 20 at one point!

They crossed the street and came down on the neighbors side of the fence.  Nine of them flew up on and over the fence into our back yard.  Ironically, they didn't stop at or even bother with the bird feeder, or rather the bird seed scattered around beneath the feeder.  They simply passed on by.

Something startled these first nine as they did an about face.  Most flew back over the fence, the others simply walked past and behind the chicken coop where they all proceeded to congregate.

All in single file -

Several pics of their flights back up, on and over the fence.  Surprisingly graceful for such a large bird -

The majority behind the coop, perhaps deciding where to go and what to do next - 

I suspect with the mild New England Winter, there'll be oodles of poults this Spring.
