If you have given up on trying to figure out what kind of creatures hang around in our backyard from the post “Creatures“, they are TURKEYS. They roost in the pine trees between our house and our neighbor’s house. They are the ugliest things ever. Right now, some of them are in our backyard. Once they get their bellies full, they just stay in the same spot that they ate and sleep!!! They are funny to watch though, especially when they chase each other around in circles for “Pecking Order”. The closest I have ever been to them was yesterday. They were about 20 feet away from me. Then Molly had to call my name to come and help her with the snowman (jeez she’s selfish :)) and she scared them away.
These pictures really are of our turkeys.
