No, not the one with the Pilgrims and the cranberries – it’s turkey hunting season here in Massachusetts.
And I just happen to have gotten this good-ish shot of a big old Tom in a pasture up by the Vermont line yesterday:
They’re really colorful, and so ugly they’re almost cute!
Anyway, there were two of these Toms gobbling and strutting and spreading their tails to try to woo a gaggle of females, but I didn’t see either of them getting lucky; whenever they got close, the girls they would fly up into trees and laugh at them.
I have to thank Gizmo for this shot – these bad boys weren’t going to come anywhere near me, this being hunting season and all.
