Wild Turkeys at the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center in Milwaukee Wisconsin on November 30, 2018

One of my birding stops today was the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center. It was a quiet day there birding like most places this time of year. The highlight was a flock of Wild Turkeys back in the woods near a ravine. I stopped on the opposite side of the ravine not to disturb them for a few shots. A flock of 6 and one of them remained perched in a tree while I was present. One displayed the whole time I was there too. A couple wandered around feeding, a couple just rested around the area they were in. It was nice to see them just doing what they do. It was a gloomy day, temps around 30, low winds out there, not bad for the end of November. Images were taken on November 30, 2018.

    Nice photos. We have about 20 turkeys wandering through our woods, probably looking for stray acorns and any goodies we might put out.

    Very nice shots Jim:) The perched one did remind me of a vulture . . . . . Happy birding to you.

    Very nice photos Jim—thanks. We miss our Wild Turkeys here on the West Side of Madison. No Screech Owls yet either. It’s a very boring landscape here sadly!

    Love those turkeys! I, too, thought those perched on the branch looked like a vulture.

    I always enjoy seeing turkeys out and about. When,I was growing up it was a rare site. Nice Photos as always Jim.

    I guess that’s why “Turkey Vultures” got their name!

    Hey Jim! You didn’t have to go way out there, come on over to my place and I’ll show you Turkey(s), lots of them. I do have one I call Girl (she never left my side when I would garden when she was little) and she knows my voice and comes a running to me and then I hand feed her BUT! she remains wild.
