Tom Turkey struts his stuff in the high country

A couple of images for what we could call Turkey Tuesday! I happened across this gorgeous bird when starting the drive up Trail Ridge Road this past weekend. He seemed quite obsessed with finding the ladies, none of which were nearby that I spotted.

Nevertheless, he would alternate between gobbling very loudly then puffing out and putting his full plumage on display. Best of all, he didn’t mind me being there and put on quite a show for 20+ minutes until I had my fill of pictures and moved on.

I never noticed until then that you can actually hear the feathers make a whooshing sound when they spread out. Kind of cool. Certainly you do have to look past the face a bit to appreciate the beauty of these birds. 😉
