No, not ME, silly. Mom spotted this male turkey in our back yard the other day. He was strutting and displaying for a long time. When she showed Dad, he said there must be a female nearby, and so they peered around, and saw the gal shown here:
Definitely the hormones are surging for those male turkeys these days. We also later saw a whole group of about 10 in another part of our town, and the males all were displaying their tail feathers in the same way, which is quite unusual. (we are kind of over-run with turkeys for some reason!)
Goodluck, fella. I hope she chooses you.
