The Survivors

Milford Street - turkeys

Some days, I have to go looking for images and some days they find me. This flock of turkeys showed up in our yard five days after Thanksgiving.

        It is indeed odd!! Lucky you to have so many walk into your yard. Keep them as pets and decide later if they make great turkey dinners later 😉 or by then, they are great sentries!

    Hahaha! Survivors indeed! The title is perfect, especially after Thanksgiving, but as your friends already pointed out, there´s always Christmas… 😉 The shot is really wonderful, I like the intricate feel of the leaves, branches and sneaky turkeys, it all fits perfectly together, especially their wing tips and the leaves – amazing camouflage!

        Ah, I see, they´re stuffing themselves for Christmas 😉 Also makes me think, they might be suicidal… walking around the house, waiting for someone to pick them… 😉
        But turkey is not traditional on christmas in America, is it? Around here it´s goose, but no one would say no to a lovely turkey 😉 Cheers!

        Suicidal turkeys? Interesting idea. I’ve seen a few cross the road in a less than safe manner. Different people and nationalities have different customs here. We are a prime rib family. Cheers!

        See? Exactly my point! 😉
        It´s the same over here, but traditionalists prefer potato salad and wiener würstchen on Christmas Eve, goose on christmas Day – and the left overs the whole week afterwards 😉 We normally eat whatever we like, but I try to make and effort sometimes and roast something nice and big like a duck 😉 Ahh, those poor vegetarians and vegans… they don´t know what they´re missing 😉 Cheers!

      It is odd. They just show up. And unless they do a call (gobble, gobble) you don’t know they are there. A few times I’ve been hiking and spooked a bunch. I was never sure who was more startled, them or me.
