There were a dozen or two of these fellows outside when I came out to take my dog for her walk. I returned for my camera and followed them around for awhile to see what I could capture ....

@CElliottUK: We live in a suburban area, but there is a golf course and hills nearby, so we are inundated by turkeys.... they even hold up the traffic.
