A Turkey in a Tree

Friday, February 14, 2020,

This is not something you get to see very often. This Wild Turkey hen is about six feet above the ground. This particular bird did not fly to her present position so much as leap. Yeah, Turkeys are good jumpers. Most people don’t realize it, but these ungainly looking birds are also capable of flight. I’ve seen Turkeys that were thirty feet up a tree, which is where they like to roost at night. It keeps them safe from predators. This Turkey, however, is not seeking safety. She’s after those berries.  JK
