Wild Turkeys - An Auspicious Sign This Thanksgiving Week on Beech Mountain

So we were lounging around in our cozy living room in front of the fire, enjoying our leisure time immensely, when a movement out the window alerted us to something interesting going on outside: Turkeys! About eight of 'em ran across our back yard, crossed the street, and disappeared into the trees. They sure are BIG birds! You forget till you see 'em up close, un-plucked and big as life. Unfortunately they moved too fast for us to get a photograph. No wonder. At this time of year (Thanksgiving) I thought I detected a distinctly nervous expression on their beaky faces.

We will be keeping our camera out and ready by the door, just in case we are treated to another Turkey encounter again.
