For Installment Umpteen of “Look At The Wildlife On My Lawn”, I present pictures of the biggest damn turkeys I’ve ever seen in my life.
The shot isn’t all that great, but you can see them calmly walking through the shade of the treeline behind and to the left of the bird feeder. These were gigantic turkeys, halfway to “ostrich” level.
Here’s a better shot of them walking down the driveway, although this picture lacks something for scale. Take my word for it: Big. Ass. Birds. I doubt I could have gotten either of them into the oven. A bird that size can probably carry off a Shetland pony without much trouble. A few more pounds, and they would have made the surface of my morning tea ripple as they walked.
Note to self: buy a shotgun for the birds, some .22 rat shot for the tree rats, and a much bigger freezer.
