Turkeys

We’ve had a group of turkeys in our backyard all winter.  It looks to be 1 male and 2 females.  They usually don’t get close enough to get a decent picture.  This morning, Molly was on the back porch and was deeply intent on something in the back yard.  I never looked to see what she was looking at, but I knew she was focused because she was not bothered by the girls knocking on the glass windows.  Brian suddenly yelled from the back bedroom “There’s a huge turkey in the back yard!” 

We proceeded to watch the male show his tail feathers and dance at the nearby females, who seemingly were not paying attention.  🙂   In the first video, near the 10 sec mark, above the slide, the female shakes her wings.  In the second video, the male is turning in circles and dancing near the middle of the screen.
