I mentioned in a blog post just a couple of weeks ago how our resident wild turkeys have made themselves at home on the farm, wandering everywhere, including right around the dog yards. Well, the other day Alayne looked out the window and saw a turkey inside the dog yard at the front of the house. Not one dog paid any attention, let alone gave chase. The rest of the flock was just off to the left of that photo, underneath the apple trees next to the dog yard.
This one turkey must have decided there might be something worth pecking at on the other side of the fence, so over it she flew. After cruising back and forth along the fence line, it looked like she might be having second thoughts about where she landed. We could tell some of the other turkeys were calling to her, and we imagined they were saying something like, "Gladys, are you crazy? What are you doing in there?"
