Barbara, all these pictures are right in my yard! When you watch birds alot, you're almost sure to see them in some type of confrontational behavior. I'd love to see those turkey that both you and Lenore talk about!
Lenore, why don't you Like us on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/WBUSaratoga and you can post pictures there. Thanks for visiting!

I have recently had 25-28 male and female turkeys at my feeder as well as on the roof of the feeder! They do get feisty and peck at eachother; the most comical of all the birds that we love to watch! How do I email some photos of my feathered friends? I am a recent subscribor and love the info and pictures posted!


Where do you find these fabulous photos and why are so many birds so grumpy Nancy? It's hilarious.

Two days ago two wild turkeys huddled together (though there was tons of room for them both) under my bird feeder pecking up corn and grain, and one of them after peck peck peck, stabbed the one next to it. I watched it repeat this performance peck peck peck stab for about four minutes just laughing at their silliness. Love this series - such fun!

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
