Turkeys in the trees....

I captured some neat shots this morning (St. Patrick's Day) of a small flock (8) of turkeys playing in the trees in my back yard. They had previously flown down from the hillside and were having some corn. One young female flew up into a large Black Walnut tree in the yard and soon half the flock followed. They were, what it appeared to be anyway, frolicking from branch to branch and limb to limb chasing one another. It was the neatest thing to watch. (I was sitting in my living room at my computer chair just a clickin. Should have grabbed the video camera..rats) Here are a few pics.

It did a balancing act with it's wings as it walked down the limb.
It was pretty cool watching them move around the tree limbs. They were pretty agile. Great way to start the day...
