Turkey porn and other birdie stuff

Caught the neighborhood turkeys doing the nasty a couple weeks ago. It was kind of interesting, as I had never seen it before. Well, I saw most of it, anyway.
The hen ran circles around the tom for approximately two minutes, keeping a distance of what looked like six feet. He turned in place so he was facing her, fanned out the entire time. Of course, I looked away to close the truck door and that's when he jumped her and I missed it.
They stayed that way for, maybe four to five minutes.
Pic isn't that good, but I didn't dare get too close.

I thought it was kind of funny, there they are with two of his buddies hanging nearby, cheering him on. Then, when he let her up, she immediately jumped in the ditch and splashed around.

And, keeping with the bird theme,
I've had a turkey vulture hanging around, sitting on my roof for the past couple weeks. And pooping. Lots of bird poop.
I've only seen one on the roof at a time, but three of them hang out in the trees next to the house. So, maybe all of them are having a party on the peak. Makes me feel as though I should toss a dead animal up there as a snack.
Usually he/she flies off as soon as I open the door or drive up the driveway, but I did manage to snap one pic.

They are pretty cool birds.

Here, did I ever show you this - birdie bones on the deck. He flew into the big windows and killed himself. Happens all the time.
I saved the skull for my collection, of course.

Pretty interesting! I've always loved birds and their behaviors are really amazing.

The behavior of nature in general is amazing.
The older I get, the more I pay attention to ordinary stuff, like the color of the grass or the smell of the magnolia tree.

Go the turkeys! *Cheers them on also* :DD

I also love the colours in these pics - the greens and golds in the turkey one and that blue, blue sky in the second :-)

Yeah, at least someone's gettin' some. :(
hahaha.

Thanks, the sky has been unusually blue lately. And most of that gold - it's all green now. Time to cut the grass!
