Tuesday's Turkeys

While out driving the Colonial Parkway outside Williamsburg, VA this weekend, my wife spotted these wild turkeys feeding next to a pull-off.  They were quite calm as we watched from the car and then I got out and retrieved my camera from the trunk and captured some pictures.  A second car with a photographer pulled up behind us and joined in.  The turkeys feed for about five minutes before slowly vanishing into the woods.

After enjoying these be sure to stop by Tuesday's Tweets and Wild Bird Wednesday for much better photographs.


  1. You don't see many wild turkeys around our area but when you do it is pretty cool.

  2. Lots of wild turkeys around here, they are interesting to watch.

  3. Hi there - nice pictures! It must be great to see that are this big! I saw one on trip to the USA - this HUGE bird just wandered into the road - if I'd been going just a little faster it would have been ugly for the bird and the rental car!
