Default Mr. Buddylee: Every Day Is Turkey Day.

Just down the road by Matt and Gail's front yard, Mr. Buddylee spotted a pair of wild turkeys. The birds were feeding on corn left by our neighbors and were not phased by the Happy Hound's presence. The turkeys have been here for the last couple of years, feeling comfortable walking down streets and through back yards, then flying back across the Withlacoochee River at night. But, These 2 birds may want to check out how close it is to late November.

Years ago we had a group of wild turkeys living in the "wilds of suburbia". They were a group of 19 wild turkeys and one guinea hen that had escaped and taken up residence along the woods that line the parkway here. They used to follow people down the street (in single file in a straight line!), hang out in the woods, spend the night in people's backyards, and traffic would stop for them whenever they went to cross any road (especially major ones). One evening my ex was walking home from the train station planning to pick up his car from the service station where he had left it for repair that morning, and had this interesting group follow him for six blocks as if he was a mother duck leading her brood.

One of my neighbors has 3 turkeys. So far they have stayed in their yard/one their property-they have a fenced yard for them but I saw one of them outside the fenced part and on the owners truck

On a side note-Now whenever I see a Basset hound I think of Mr. Buddylee.

Just across the street from where the above photo was taken we have seen as many as 12 turkeys in the back yard.
