Talmadge (45) Eastern Wild Turkey

It’s a bit alarming to see, out of the corner of your eye, a large object falling from the sky. Earlier this morning six wild turkeys were here harassing our penned domestic turkeys. I startled them to make them fly away and scanned the trees to be sure there weren’t any stragglers. I must have missed one. The “falling” object was a hen turkey that must have been coming out of a maple or ash tree near the house. She landed in the walk to the back porch, startling mourning doves. I’ve limited feeding the wild birds to the back porch area only. Unfortunately, the turkeys found the food while we were out yesterday.  RF
