Wild Turkeys 

What animal should you never play cards with?

A cheetah.

Interesting Fact: Because of their large size, compact bones, and long-standing popularity as a dinner item, turkeys have a better known fossil record than most other birds. Turkey fossils have been unearthed across the southern United States and Mexico, some of them dating from more than 5 million years ago.

  1. We LOVE our turkeys. They roost in the trees up behind our house. There is nothing like watching those huge birds accomplish that seemingly impossible task…lifting those plump bodies up into those tall fir trees and balancing on relatively small limbs. As hard as I have tried, I have yet to capture the process with my camera. I do seem to have a lot of voyeuristic mating ritual photos though…Hmm, maybe a post? 😉

    • You should definitely post that would be so interesting to see. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing this amazing story with us. I am so jealous I wish I would have them in my backyard. Thank you again for sharing and Happy Blogging! 🙂
