About 20 minutes ago, I am walking out of the living room into the dining room. I happen to glance out the backyard window, and nearly freak out.
What is standing in my backyard?
See, we live in the country, but we are less than a mile from a pretty large town.
Sure, we have neighbors with horses, and chickens, but they live several houses down.
We have never had any of their animals come in our backyard.
And I don't think this turkey is one of theirs.
It could fly.
Most farmers with turkeys will clip their wings, so they don't fly off. So, I am guessing that this is a wild turkey.
It was to far away to tell for sure, but I believe it is a female, since she doesn't have the waddle. (I believe that is what you call it)
At first, I thought it was a peacock...but I had never seen a peacock that big...
It was very strange...
I guess he was trying to get away from the dinner table...lol
Thanks for reading! ~Sam
