I know, I know...I've had a very similar photo to this already posted here on the TSC. But never have I been able to show you a video (poorly lit as it was at 4:45 pm yesterday afternoon) of my turkeys doing their nightly flight!
I've been trying to catch my turkeys flying up into their tree for some time now. But it's either it's been too dark, the camera's been AWOL in my car, I've been shoeless, or some other thing, and I've not had any success at it. However, yesterday, all the pieces finally fell into place (except for my coat being close at hand) and after what seemed like a bazillion cold minutes just standing there, I captured this gargantuan bird, who doesn't look like it should even be able get it's butt off the ground, lifting off and then landing in his night-time "bed", if you can call it that. Never been more pleased - or cold!
