    Don't Hate Me Because I'm Beautiful...

    She decided to take up residence in our yard yesterday, and I just couldn't help myself!

    Great pic! She has spectacular coloring, everything from black to light blue, pink, red.

    Is she a turkey?

    Thanks maplestreet. Yep, wild turkeys roam our area fairly regularly. Luckily they don't stick around too long, they can make quite a mess!

    Nice shot Ken, too bad thanksgiving is so far away (LOL). I have been told that they live in my part of the world, but I have never seen one.

    Cheers,

    Thanks WG. Our turkey population seems to be on the rise the past few years. Maybe some will migrate north to give you a better chance at seeing them.

    Thanks Bob. She had a friend when she arrived, but this one hung around for awhile longer. Down in the valley along the Musselshell River we usually see them in groups of 20-30, but up in the hills where we live they tend to run in small bunches. I think 13 was the largest flock that has come visiting.
