turkey sighting

Yesterday as I drove to work, I saw a turkey hen by the side of the road, and lined up on each side of her were seven babies, hardly larger than robins. As my car approached, she walked away from the road into the woods, and the little ones fell in behind her in two columns, just like a marching band.

If I'd had a camera with me, they'd have been gone before I could reach for it.


  1. I love seeing the new babies, but around here it's mostly geese or ducks.
    Glad you got to see the turklets. :)

  2. New babies are always so cute. I did get a glimpse of a wild turkey when I headed with a lady to Arizona a few years back. I couldn't believe my eyes because we don't have them here. Too bad you didn't have your camera. I should carry mine with me more often, too!
