I have seen so many wild tukeys and babies in New Hampshire this summer. This morning I almost hit a big family sitting in the middle of the road.

I have had similar experiences

Living in the woods of Harrisville, NH over the years, I've seen my share of "turkeys in the road". Honestly, I love those birds, but do honk when I see them to clear the road. And yes, turkeys can fly!

Wild Turkeys

I thought for a moment that you were giving a good Thanksgiving Recipe ... LOL.

Here, the only Wild Turkeys that I am aware of are at The Zoo, in winter they run wild and sit on the top of a particular fence. The visitors think that they are plastic statues until one flies down or even just moves, then the visitors are quite startled for a moment, then they laugh.

Wild Turkeys

I have been hoping the trees I have been growing on my place will attract in some of the Wild Turkeys from the near by woods, I have lots of grasshoppers on my place, and they would be very helpful on getting rid of the grasshoppers.
