Ligpd, when I first spotted the bird, my thought was "oh no, I'm way too close, he'll see me!"  so I decided to move farther away, and then he started gobbling.  After I moved, he eventually flew down, away from my location.  The bird I shot was one of two birds that flew down some time later.  Glad you liked the pic.
