Brief Encounter in the Mountains...











I have been looking at houses in the mountains this week.  It is time for me to nest.. At one of the houses I looked at yesterday this flock of wild turkeys were in the woods in the backyard.  There were 8 or 9 of them. The hens are hard to see. The Tom's stand out with there dark coloring. They are beautiful bird's with their shimmerinig feathers. They are also very curious birds.  One came right up to me.  We came out from looking at the house and they were in the driveway.  Boy are they fast runner's. What a hoot. I had to share these pictures with you. Gobble gobble.
