Turkey time all over

Wild Turkey, Wells, Maine, USA — I don’t ever remember seeing so many turkeys as we are seeing this year. There are several large flocks that are out and about daily between my home at the south edge of Kennebunk and the north edge of Wells. And they seem particularly fearless this year…foraging in yards and along side the road…not paying much attention to passing humans. I stopped for three of these birds I saw on one side of the road, and then just stood and waited for the rest of the flock to come to me and cross the road close enough to where I was standing so that I could not get the whole turkey in a 600mm frame. Of course they are big turkeys…all big Toms in this particular flock. Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications.
