turkeys and no camera

Coming home this evening, as I was coming up the driveway, past the pond and over the hill, there in the road just before the "little wood" was a family of turkeys: three adults, and ten--they were out in the open enough to count--young ones. I stopped the car, and they continued their procession down the road. When they got into the woods, I slowly moved forward and the adults got off on the verges, but the teenage turkeys continued down the middle of the road until one of the adults came back out and shooed them off into the bushes. As I drove by I could not see the adults at all, but the young ones still had their head sticking up in sight, watching me. 


  1. Isn't that always the way? If you had a camera, there wouldn't have been turkeys, so I guess it's good at least you got to enjoy them.

  2. Teenagers are the same everywhere, aren't they? Think they're invincible.

  3. Neat! Don't think I've ever seen a family of turkeys before.

  4. Sounds very cool. Funny how no matter what species, teens have to be escorted by adults.
    "Mom, can you walk me and 9 of my turkey friends to the mall?"
