Wow. Those birds are magnificent. How amazing to have them walking freely across the countryside.

The Rio Grande turkeys are amazing ... long-legged critters that can grow to over four feet tall. It's not unusual to see twenty or more at a time (we counted forty-some once) and they're very nice about leaving a feather behind every so often.

They never cease to amaze me ... we had six older hens who always traveled together, one of which was very lame. If I went outside when they were in the yard, two or three of the hens would move away from Hop-along and make a lot of noise to divert my attention while she limped away in the opposite direction. Sadly, she hasn't been spotted this spring, but she had a good long run considering the predators in our area.
