2.23 Turkeys in winter

We had some visitors drop by this week. I haven't seen them strut through the yard since late summer. They're quite a bit bigger and glossier than they were back then...

and they are either hungrier or bolder (or both), since they were prowling around the outside of the garden fencing, eyeing the bird feeders. They were not, however, ready to brave the dog who's just about the size of the coyotes we have locally. When he went out, they decamped rather hastily.

I see they are Tom's...have they paired up with any hens yet? Were they fanning?
