Wild Turkey Display

I was surprised to see a Wild Turkey struting around my yard the other morning. There are quite a few around where we live, but usually they are not displaying and are females. Reminds me of a post from fellow blogger Mike Powell, https://michaelqpowell.wordpress.com, earlier this week, showing a Wild Turkey struting around displaying it’s feathers from the back. Thought it was funny to see a similar pose. So, thanks Mike for giving me the inspiration for a similar image.

Wild Turkey

We saw this Wild Turkey walking along a path at the end of the Wildlife Drive at the Brigantine Division of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Oceanville, NJ. I was hoping it would turn slightly so I could get a better photo, but it just kept walking away from us. This was the best view of the series. I had heard them and saw them far away, but this was the first  one I saw somewhat close by.
