Wild Idaho Turkeys

     We have wild turkeys in our backyard, front yard, on the garage and everywhere else. They've invaded. Unfortunately they are very skittish and flighty so if I try to open the door or take pictures they're darting off. I was however able to get a couple of pictures out of my dozens of blurry/hazy/fuzzy photos of a few of the turkeys.

What the...turkey stampede? The whole flock must have visited our driveway.

Disclaimer; I grew up around turkeys, domestic or wild, they're pretty much the same thing to me. Although the white turkeys we had were friendly, the brown ones we had were wilder and not that fun or tasty.

Yep, I grew up raising a few farm animals to eat, turkeys, chickens, rabbits, pig. However I will never eat rabbit again, I don't like the taste and despite my farm-girl knowledge of 'they're going to be food' most of the rabbits I took care of were pets or in a few occasions pests.
