|I went for a walk on Saturday to look for signs of spring. It was too easy! There are flowers blooming like crazy out there.
|So many colors of crocus. Click to enlarge.
|Then I turned a corner and saw this...
|A turkey! A big tom turkey all puffed up and ready to breed! He was gobbling and strutting like he was the king of all the turkeys. I was as impressed as I was surprised.
|I've seen turkeys in New Jersey before, where they are becoming common, and I've written a couple of blogs about them (click here for one, here for another). But I usually spot them out of breeding season when they large but not too flashy, like in the photo above.
|But this guy was dressed to kill! Here's his other side.
|Here's his amazing head. The turkey sighting drove all my thoughts of spring flowers right out of mind and turned this into a turkey blog. You have just been turkey bombed!
