Turkeys in the snow

turkey 052It has been a brutal winter here in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Frigid temperatures, a deep snow cover and today an ice storm. It looks like I am not the only one having a hard time walking in these conditions. The gobblers who have been in my back yard since the Summer showed up a few days ago and they look thin and weather beaten form the severe Winter we are having. They usually are cautious creatures who scatter at the slightest sound or movement. Not today. They literally ran to my feeder when I threw out some corn and seed. Hoping this weather cold breaks soon since it is taking a toll on a lot of the wildlife. But that is the way of nature, it is harsh, but only the strongest do survive, unless they get some help from their human friends. Hoping the video I took post on this page. It is the first time I am trying it. Here is a link to some more photos I took of the turkey in my yard this afternoon.

    Nice pics and video of them gobblers Frank. They’re having a little tough time now, but soon you’ll be watching them strutting and gobbling around. Had no trouble getting around the site.
