I took the following pictures about 30 minutes ago while standing on the back deck of my home. The quality leaves a lot to be desired, but the batteries were dead in my Nikon camera so I grabbed my wife's little point and shoot camera just so I could get a picture of them.

We love our wild turkeys here, too. Have 30 of them come within 30' of the house all winter and 2 Tom's that have stuck with the pattern throughout this summer. We look forward to seeing them every day. Great pics of the family you've got there.

Nice pictures, we are lucky enough to have deer and turkeys going through our back yard often.

I took these this spring. At that time I believe there had to be at least 50-60 of them and the pictures don't really do the rafter justice as 1/2 of them had already crossed the crest of the hill. It is something to hear them early in the morning as the soon rises when they start to gobble and call. I am still hoping to catch some night time pictures of them resting in the trees.

This was my jobsite for about 6 months. Every morning and every afternoon, a troop of about 12 turkeys would come thru. Pretty cool to watch the hatchlings grow. Never saw the Toms with the hens, only saw 2 Toms, and they were trying to figure out who was top dog (turkey)

Great pictures, we have a hen turkey living in the woods by the house. When she comes out looking for food the dogs go crazy, I keep the dogs in the house.
