Surly beasts

Cheating a little - this was taken before the big freeze. (Click to see it larger.)

We stopped just in time to spot this flock rounding the corner up ahead. I wanted to talk turkey, but they were not agreeable.

The two on the right were torn between joining their friends on the open road, and turning back to the brushy path at hand. In the end, they remembered that saying about birds of a feather, and ran to catch up.

Don't you just love little surprises like seeing turkeys. Poor things were probably scared to death that they'd be on your Thanksgiving table.

We see a lot of turkey and it always makes me laugh when one or two split off, then realize their mistake and run to catch up...I love when the flock still has babies that they herd along
