Struttin' yer stuff

Why has this image become associated with Thanksgiving? Turkeys breed in the spring!

This lovely fellow is in my dooryard. They (he and the females) are very skittish. If I move past a window they cluck/pop off and run for cover. I had to shoot this very surreptitiously.

I can hear him right now, gobbling out in the field behind the house. A Ruffed Grouse was drumming across the road this morning. The thrush are back, and a Northern Parula warbler has been gleaning bugs from my wood pile for several days.

I wish I never had to go back to work. And I am sure no one has ever wished that before.
