Wild Turkeys

I did take my camera with me on our walk today, and we did spot 13 different species of birds including 17 Mallard Ducks, 30 American Robins, and 40 European Starlings, but this is the best photo I could produce.  This handsome pair, Mr. & Mrs. Tom Turkey, are technically known  as  a Wild Turkey”, but it would be hard to convince any of the local people here in Elkton that they are “wild”.  They are in fact a year around nuisance, raising heck with people's gardens and flower beds, and pooping on the streets and sidewalks.  Every year about this time as Thanksgiving draws nigh I consider doing my part to help curb the local population, and provide for my table at the same time.  hmmm
