The Lucky Ones

Today is the American holiday of Thanksgiving where the traditional main course generally served is roast turkey. However, here are a few of our local wild turkeys running free who have to consider themselves fortunate right now. 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends in the U.S. that are celebrating on this day!

    • Yes being wild can indeed have advantages especially if it means you end up being left alone. I was going to head over to the swamp and see if any Thanksgiving alligators were out but couldn’t make it. Hope they understand. Thanks for the holiday wishes!

    • Well I greatly appreciate you kind comments and Thanksgiving wishes Steve. I would have got to the comments and my blog reader here much earlier but my computer was giving me fits and I thought it was toast but then finally got it sorted late last night. All seems well (so far) today.

  1. What a beauty. We had six wild turkeys roaming our street last year! Very odd! We don’t have turkey for Thanksgiving though. 🙂

      I’m sure those birds are very happy exactly where they are rather then on someone’s table.

  2. Great photos Phil! Nice beards on a few of them. Truth be told a wild turkey is tough as a boot! We’ve tried preparing them various ways, but I’ve yet to be successful getting tender, juicy results.

    • I kind of suspected as much about the wild turkey. Oh well good for them, they get to continue on living their quiet little turkey lives. 🙂
      Thanks very much for looking and commenting.

  3. Occasionally we get a group of wild turkeys passing through our yard. They are loud, but the Toms are sure pretty as they are going after the females with their feathery displays.
    Great photos and I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
