Catching the rays

The avifauna is taking advantage of the warm, dry weather to catch some sun. This brush turkey looked embarrassed at being caught in such an uncharacteristic pose, that it immediately scrambled to its feet and resumed mooching for handouts (which were not forthcoming).

Can't resist suggesting Turkey in the (St)raw in light of tweets.

:D @ Tony!

Dave, they're worse than gremlins. Not only do you not feed them after midnight, you don't feed them before either.

Wonderful pics as always.

Thanks! That's about the only time I've ever seen a turkey stay still for more than a few seconds.
