Thanks to Tennesse Magazine for these photos
Wild turkey on the roost with her poults trying to give them the best shelter that she can provide.
Notice the large lateral branches the hen has chosen. When scouting note trees with these types of branching, wild turkeys favor them for roosting.
Notice how small these poults are and they’re sitting up in a large tree already.
Looks like the nesting hen is turning her eggs.
Please post your captions in the comments. Enjoy.
Will these wonders never cease?
Sure hope not, there are more coming so this post will be updated when they arrive.
It just keeps getting “more gooder”! LOL!
Other photos are supposed to be coming. But have not received any of them yet.
My favorite is the hen with her wings spread over the poults.
Photo #1 reminds me of the time I saw a wing bone (happened to be too rotten to create a call from under an identical branch formation locally on private land. ‘yotes!
Wow. That’s pretty neat. Keep ’em coming, Charlie.
