the turkey field

See this ugly field? That’s what I call it. The Ugly Field. It has been occupied by dozens upon dozens of turkeys this month. Every time I would drive by–on my way to Home Depot–I would be tempted to stop and take a picture of them, but I more important things to do. Like return a bucket of grout.

One morning I drove into position for a great photo, determined not to let the opportunity pass by, when I realized I didn’t have my phone with me. Therefore, no camera.

This picture was taken when there were only a couple of turkeys in the field. Earlier that day there had been at least a dozen enormous male turkeys strutting their stuff with their tail feathers spread out in grand displays of turkey masculinity.

Impressive, in a Thanksgiving-decoration way.

You’ll have to take my word for it, because I missed all the photo ops. Even Banjo Man doesn’t believe me.

P.S. Note the clouds. This is what we call “Spring” here in Rhode Island.
