This Turkey tom showed off for the ladies as a rafter moved through my neighborhood a couple of weeks ago. It was a bit odd – and fun – to have them come strolling through suburbia. Naturally I whipped out the camera and managed a bunch of pictures of them.
With spring pretty much here it is mating season so the toms are doing their best to get the attention of the hens. This group has been spotted across a couple of miles of our suburb in recent weeks as, I presume, they look for new foraging grounds. Taken in Thornton, Colorado.
