Mariton: Turkeys At The Door

June 8, 2011

Turkeys at Nature Center

On Saturday, while tallying the numbers from the Bird Census.  I heard something knocking upstairs in the Nature Center.  I went upstairs and saw five turkeys on the apron in front of the entrance.  One Tom Turkey was all puffed up trying to intimidate the young males and the “other handsome Tom” (his reflection in the glass doors).  He banged several times at his reflection trying to scare the interloper off.  I eventually interceded by showing myself, and then washed the windows.
