7 - Out for a Stroll
I first caught sight of these five turkeys in October when they decided to hang out in front of my house - our very own set of turkeys in the hood. These turkeys were hatched at a neighborhood park just 4 blocks from my home. I know this because the local paper has been following their progress and writing about them on occasion.
On Saturday I went to the local knit shop (Crafty Planet is wonderfully just two blocks from my home) and found these turkeys were also interested in some window shopping.
The males have such pretty colors.
I have a thing for wild turkeys, especially the ones I see out in the woods near our Airstream retreat. The thing that I have for them is derived from the fact that the sight of wild turkeys make me hungry. I don't know why. I've never really had an urge to hunt any sort of animal unless you would consider fishing in this category.
But I assure you my carnivorous urge does not apply to those turkeys strolling through my neighborhood.
There's just no way I could eat one my neighbors!
