What more appropriate time for turkeys to wander through the yard than November? Still 13 turkeys (down from 14 in July) but no further depredations of the flock to date. The adults are indistinguishable from the juveniles (except perhaps by coloration by the expert, but not to us). They came from the south this time into my neighbor's yard (no not that neighbor, the other one who kept his trees and has a jumbo leaf vacuum which he dumps into the compost pile which can be seen in the background). The dog was watching intently but didn't bark this time, so they wandered leisurely through.
I wonder when hunting season for turkeys opens.

Turkeys are the best part of November. I don't know when hunting season is here. Probably this time of year.

In New York, there are two turkey season: spring (entire month of May) and fall, which varies by region, but sometime in October to sometime in November.

Luv the turkeys!
Soon the toms and the hens will go their separate ways...until spring!
