Spring comes to the wild turkeys

Wild turkeys have been gobbling under my windows this past week. I photographed this pair next to the neighbor’s deck. Perhaps they are getting ready to nest.

This handsome tom displayed tirelessly to his graceful lady. She preened herself coquettishly throughout, showing little regard for his beautiful feathers and prominent beard.

She turns her head, from reaching into her preening gland to oil her feathers.

I hope we’ll soon have poults running around. They are delightful to watch.
