Is It Thanksgiving Yet?
« on: November 21, 2011, 02:00:15 PM »
My son spotted these guys the other day running down the road. Today they were nice enough to pose in the yard for me. First time ever seeing turkeys in the yard. Duluth is really stretching the range of turkeys in MN.  Interesting timing!

They are just starting to show up around here.  I saw my first ones around Duluth about 5 years ago.  Now I see a couple a year.  kind of neat to see them in the yard.

Duluth is a tough place for winter (have a manufacturing Plant there Brrrrrr)
I was amazed to see them there do you think someone introduced them to the area they look cold...

I think they are just slowly adapting to the North.  With more and more birds in the Southern part of the state, they seem to just be getting pushed this way.  I hope they find a nice place to winter up here.
