Fair Oaks CA wild turkeys are brave!

Fair Oaks CA wild turkeys are brave!

These wild turkeys stop by our front yard twice a day on their rounds.  I have no idea what they find to eat there, but they scratch through the fallen leaves from our magnolia tree and seem to find something. 
Fair Oaks CA turkeys
They don't seem to care if I'm standing with them, and in fact sometimes I have to shoo them away so I can get to my car to leave for a meeting.

This group is two mamas (lighter color) and their adolescent broods.  There are about 25-30 of them between these two moms.  I have no idea if the hens are the actual moms of all of those young ones.  They might just be the teachers taking them out to learn how to fare in the world.

They are brave, since this was taken just a bit before Thanksgiving 2012.  But then they probably know that we are animal lovers at our house and wouldn't dream of harming them.

We have watched them since the "kids" were tiny babies, scurrying after the hens, and the neighborhood thinks of them as "our" turkeys.  The cats don't especially like them, but keep their distance because these birds are a lot bigger than they are.

Susan, the wild turkeys in Placer County have the same characteristics as what you describe. :)

Happy New Year!

I rarely see a couple or three on the side of the road, but never in my yard.  Maybe my dogs keep them away.

Leilani - I guess they're all from the same family - we are neighboring counties, after all.

Tammy - Fair Oaks has lots of wildlife, including our famous feral chickens, the turkeys, and an occasional peacock, in addition to the mammals that wander through.  It's as if they all know that Fair oaks is a safe area for them.  Our chickens, especially, are protected.

Hi Susan,

Great pictures and maybe they eat worms or bugs. Not sure but interesting. Thanks for sharing. Happy New Year.
