This busy mom strolled along just outside a neighbor's wire fence, while most of her large flock of young wild turkeys played and fed on the other side.

"But Mum, the grass looks greener on this side!"
The "common" names of birds can be a bit of a mystery at time - especially some of the old ones.
Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW

How cute ! I never saw a wild turkey !

I'm glad she could find an opening in the fence, I was a bit worried there for a minute.

Turkeys are strange and cute birds. Thank you for sharing :)
July 31, 2013 at 03:14 AM
Wow! She really is a great mother! Nice shots.

They look rather tame to me. What's with the "wild" stuff. But that's the trouble with turkeys. And then try to catch 'em on Thanksgiving! Sheesh! :)

HOW cute I love them.
July 31, 2013 at 05:17 AM
Oh, how LOVELY♡♡♡ Wonderful mother and intuitively kew the dancer!!!
I've never seen turkey before p;) When I first knew about them when little, I thought they look SO different from chicken and wondered about the tastes, haha.
Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

Our daughter has three turkey's. They are as tame as dogs and just as much fun to take care of!

A good mother indeed! I also like your photos of Idaho, I've driven through the state once but didn't spend much time there.

Hi, orchid again;
Haha, I found my big typo in my comment up there (I've done it again). I meant "Wonderful mother and intuitively knew the danger!!!" I'm using the soft which it can give me selection of the words, I hit the diffrent choice of the word. I'll be more careful.
I came here to see if you wrote another post or not and found it. I hope you are have a wonderful week, my dear friend♡♡♡
Love and hugs, xoxo Miyako*

Very nice photos Sallie! It seems that turkeys are everywhere I go lately. Although domestic turkeys can't fly, these wild ones are excellent and fast flyers. I have no idea why they don't fly more...

Lovely photo's Sally and look at that great mother. she takes good care of the kids
August 01, 2013 at 10:58 AM
A definite contender for Mother of the Year, Sallie. Enjoyed these.

Turkeys are such fun birds, I rarely ever get to see them so looking at your photos was a real treat.
August 01, 2013 at 03:32 PM
Hi, Sallie! Great shots of the Turkeys! It's been fun seeing so many healthy turkey flocks in central Florida this year.
Thank you for sharing yours!

Oh my gosh, what sweet captures! We have them here, too, but they stay pretty well hidden. I'm always surprised when I see one in an open field.
August 02, 2013 at 02:04 PM
so many chicks to keep track on. :)
