It's Turkey Time

I've been lax in my blogging, too preoccupied with the upcoming Holidays.  But this recent sighting was just too appropriate for the season to let slide by.
  Does this bird look nervous?
Actually, they seem remarkably nonchalant as they move out into the sun after hunting acorns under the oaks.  A few months ago it was easy to tell the hens from the chicks, now they are all about the same size.

See more critters at Camera Critters, hosted for us by Misty Dawn.

They look calm because they don't have a calendar!! What great, fun shots for the day, Martha!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend and an even better Thanksgiving!! Enjoy!

Gobble, gobble. I think they are probably safe. They're not in a cold case in a store.

They grow up so fast ;>)! Love that you captured the blue color on them.

Turkeys always look nervous, to me...
You got really close to them, though!
