Wild Turkeys Eating in Our Neighbor's Yard

I've tried to get a photo of these wild turkeys, different times. Every time I come out with a camera, they take off running in the opposite direction. Yesterday, they didn't leave, because our neighbor lady had put some birdseed out in their bird feeder. Whatever falls onto the ground, the wild turkeys and squirrels compete with each other, to get it first. I wasn't close enough to get a good shot, because I didn't want to frighten them again.

I think she throws corn out there too, but I'm not sure what they're eating. My father use to feed the wild turkeys, when he lived here. If he was late putting out the corn, they would climb onto the side porch and peck on the door! LOL @Susan2015

I've noticed @kobesbuddy I've been trying to see the lizards before the take off like bats outta hell but thats not gonna happen anytime soon. Then there's the road runners, by the time I see em they're hightailing after a lizard, they're really fast too.

Nice picture of the turkeys. My husband and I were on our way to church Sunday and on the way we saw a bunch of turkeys out in the field. I love to see a fully dressed out turkey strutting his stuff lol! I am also looking forward to turkey on Thanksgiving Day. We live in Northeastern PA and are going to NC to our sons for Thanksgiving. We are looking forward to it. We'll leave Wednesday and leave to come home Saturday. Thanks for sharing your picture, it's always nice to see the real thing.

@kobesbuddy So glad your family is closer to you. I know that means a lot. As all my children ages 31,32, 34 and 37, they all live far away. I don't get to see our 7 grandchildren either. It hurts! But then theres God I believe He will work something out so I can see them again, that gives me hope. Our son in NC doesn't have any children yet! Do you know Jesus Christ as your Savior?

@kobesbuddy They sure are, and year-round, too. Here, we have a new flock of young hens that the larger older ones push around. And even though the breeding season isn't till next April, the Tom's are still strutting their stuff. Guess it's always breeding season for them! Typical males....
