..this morning and it’s not even Thanksgiving yet

turkeys-webThese wild turkeys! We actually saw a flock of 8 birds parade through our backyard. They’ve been coming in closer since the weather is getting colder. These birds are BIG. Their bodies are 3.6 to 3.8 feet long (1.1 to 1.2 m), the wingspan ranges from 4.1 to 4.8 feet (1.3 to 1.4 m) and they can weigh 5.5 to 18.8 pounds (2.5 to 10.8 kg). I included the SI system for my international friends that check on this blog. And they can FLY! (really, I’ve seen them do it).
