Good Fences #127 - Why did the Turkey Cross the Field?



Welcome! - It's time for some GOOD FENCES hosted by Theresa from the Run-a-round Ranch Report.

Back in April I posted some deer that we had spotted in a farmers field. (See this post) - We also happened to spot something else in the field.  They were quite far off but we were able to determine as they got closer that they were wild turkeys.

This one I cropped so you could see them better.


What's weird about these shots is it looks like I'm standing on a mountain looking down on them.  It was actually just a small hill looking down onto the farmers field below.

This is my favorite shot of them.  You can see the fence line and the road and the turkeys.

Hope you've enjoyed these fences and turkeys today. - Have a great day.

  12. We saw several wild turkeys when we visited in eastern Washington. Fences mean nothing to those creatures! :)

  13. Dearest Ida; Oh Yes, I can see the fence line and the road and the turkeys clearly with enlarged pictures♪ We don't have this kind of wide farmer's field in my area :-)

  18. Great spotting those turkeys Ida. Fun shots! My sister-in-law had an experience recently. She was walking with a friend when they came across some turkeys. One of them came running at home and was very annoyed by their presence. They didn't hang around, my sister-in-law and her friend that is.

  22. I have also found that the camera can serve as a "spotting scope" by providing reliable magnification which far exceeds that of binoculars. So many times I may have dismissed some distant bird or animal (or artifact) as something else and only found the truth after getting home and enlarging its image on the PC.

  23. Lovely views of the field, they look so neat. Have a beautiful weekend!

  24. I never heard about the turkey one:):)what I noticed about turkeys, is that they're mostly in groups. Thank you for responding to my question by email! Have a great weekend, and "see" you in a few days at SEASONS!

  26. Great shots Ida! We have wild turkeys around here too. How have you been? How was your summer?

    ReplyDelete
  27. We have some wild turkeys around here too. They used to come down the street every morning and wait with the kids at the bus stop. OF course I never got a picture back then of that event! SMH. I haven't seen them in awhile though, but you can always spot some in the fields just outside of the town.

  34. Great images. I thought you were in the air, perhaps in a balloon when I first looked at them!
    Have a wonderful new week.

  35. It does look like you have an almost aerial view! Enjoyed seeing the wild turkeys, fence, and fields.

  36. Lots of turkeys -- it does look like great country for them. They seem to be doing very well.

  37. That does have quite the unique perspective. Nice captures.

  38. It does appear you were at a higher elevation. My in-laws used to have wild turkeys visit their yard. I'd never seen them before. Love your header. How nicely the sparrows lined up for you. :D

  39. This happened to me today: I was driving in a rural area and suddenly something huge flew right in front of my windshield! I braked and avoided hitting it's feet and realized it was a wild turkey! Quite a surprising sight!
