It’s breeding season for wild turkeys so the guys are putting on a show.

Which one will the ladies prefer?

Well, maybe they want to see them from this side, too, before they make up their minds.

    1st looks like they’re doing the “Turkey Tushy” ….

    2nd looks like they are eyeing each other up .. “You wanna piece of me??!!”

    We have large flocks of turkeys near our house. One day I drove past a flock of at least 2 dozen birds with 6 or 7 males all displaying, 3 of them lined up in a row. Then over the weekend, I drove past a field where there were 3 hens strolling across the field and one lone male in all of his glory running after them….I don’t know if he was just trying to get them to notice him, or if he was trying to herd them, but in any case, the hens didn’t seem particularly concerned. and he looked very awkward running with his feathers in full display. It’s fun to watch the turkeys during breeding season. What I’d like to see is a woodcock mating ritual, but I’ve never been lucky enough to come across any…I’ve never even seen one in the wild.
