The Mating Rituals of Turkeys

I have blogged about turkeys in a previous post.  They have been wandering around our yard all winter. They seem to really like the strawberry patch that we covered with straw. My husband has done a lot of raking straw back off the lawn and back into the bed. There have been very few turkey sightings for a few weeks, but a small group showed up with three males strutting their stuff and a few females being unimpressed. I went out to photograph the displays, but of course they wandered into areas of our yard with distracting backgrounds like cars. I finally was able to slowly approach them in my neighbor’s back yard just before they disappeared into the woods.
