Turkey Day, Plum Cove

We were invited to Judy and Ray's Thanksgiving dinner near Plum Cove. Eight birds entered the back yard and Tom and I went outside to take photos, but the turkeys headed for the woods. That may be because Tom was wearing a cook's apron, which scared the daylights out of them. Later, when I saw them travel around the other side of the house, a took a few shots thru the windows. I call this one: "The Turkey we didn't eat." The meal was delicious, and the guest of honor was a neighbor 100 years old.

  • An unexpected treat at this Thanksgiving dinner was speaking with Mary A. Barker and her husband Bob. Mary is a regular contributor to GMG, and also the photographer for our Schooner Adventure.

  • This is a good one fred – These are on a major comeback not as fearful of humans as they used to be and they are keen sighted – Wild turkeys have excellent day vision not so good at night and can hear real well…We raised turkeys on our small farm for many years egg’s are good…At night like to fly up high and roost in tree’s, on barn or house roof, when inside a barn would stay up toward the roof on roost boards…They are very fast on the ground running too…I used to be amazed at watching them go up to a weed with a grasshopper on it home in and get it when I couldn’t even see it blended in so well. Very adaptable to weather and tend not to get out of elements rain, snow etc…Catch them and put them in barn when able to.
