Talking Turkey

You can click on this Pic for a better look.
Woke up this morning to see two turkeys roosting in the trees across West Shore Drive, about thrity feet up from the ground.   Just yesterday, Joanne was asking me where the turkeys spend the night. 
Now we know.
I stopped watching them for a second, and next thing I knew, they were pecking away in the front lawn.  Big huge birds.
It's incredible that turkeys are found in such abundance in this area.   It's the same instance with Canada Geese.  Neither of these species could be found here when I was a kid.... now they are commonplace.
In 1950, there were an estimated 300,000 turkeys in the United States... now the number is 5.4 million.  Two of them have been hanging around our house.  Nice comeback.
