While the wild turkeys are mainly interested in feeding at this time of year, the occasional fight does break out when two flocks meet. Within a month the gobblers will begin feeling early stirrings of the mating season; gobbling and fighting will become more common.
I photographed this gobbler during a snow shower early this morning as he fluffed his feathers in a display of dominance toward another gobbler. Today the display was all that was needed to force his opponent back off.
Beautiful shot of the "Gobbler"!! Love your blog.
i really like the wispy grasses in front, and the snow coming down. :)
Love that you captured him in the cold rain. I tried to find one in an old house on Monday, but the only thing I found were some quail (no pics though).
Fantastic shot! The natural elements really tell a lot.
