Gobble, Gobble, Gobble!

Around dinner time, there was a sound from back yard. Gobble, gobble, gobble, soon after I realized there might be a tom turkey I grabbed my camera and ran in front of windows.

Here he is!

It was the first time for me to see a male turkey in such a close range, especially when the time he opened his colorful feathers!

Look at the tail fans, the “beard” formed by the thin feathers on their chest, the bright blue face and the distinctive large plumper snood.

I found that he was trying so hard to present his prettiest body, unfortunately no girls were interested in his show.

Poor guy!

I felt really bad on him. But I am sure that his mate must be somewhere close and eventually they will meet and have a family together.

Thanks for visiting my post!

Focus on the Details

  1. Wonderful images Yan. we have many wild turkeys here and it’s always fun to see the males showing off. Ours seem to have dozens in their harems! Despite their many colors and interesting array, I’m sad to say I don’t find them very attractive – but hopefully they’re much more interested in the hens’ opinions than mine LOL.
