On Monday the 10th my new Canon 40D came in and so I headed off to Dodge Nature Center to try it out. While I was there I spotted a couple of groups of wild turkeys that had come out of the woods to forage the lawns by the headquarters. There were two groups with a total off 29 turkeys.
I was taking picture when I saw another tom come out of the woods alone. The toms running the two groups that I was photographing puffed up and started heading to the intruder, their harems following behind.After a short stare down the 3 toms erupted into a frenzy of furry and feathers.The intruder held his ground for a while but the two group leaders where relentless and eventually he retreated back into the woods and the groups went about on their merry way.
