Wild Turkeys Sightings in Winter

I saw a flock of wild turkeys walking down the road in front of our house.  They looked as big as a large dog and there was about ten of them.   I grabbed the camera and took some good photos when they flew up into the neighbors crab apple tree. They hung around the house for a couple hours.

 This is when our Australian Shepherd noticed the turkey activity and started barking.  All the turkeys took off.  I didn't know they could fly so well.

My husband spotted this one while getting firewood from outside at dusk.  This turkey is in the top of one of the tallest trees in our backyard forest.
