In Roughly One Month

These wild Rio Grande gobblers will kick-off their yearly spring mating rituals. They will become vocal, dramatic, visible and extremely CRAZY in pursuit of their female hens. I will cover this year's wild turkey scene as well as I can.....it's always a joy to watch them!

I caught this group edging along a fenceline enroute to a spring fed stream. Once they realized I had them covered with my lens, they simply held here never attempting to fly across the stream. Darn the luck.....I had hoped to catch a few in-flight as they winged over. Tough shots to pull off...these old boys are cautious and have excellent hearing and vision. Maybe next time.
