No, not Thanksgiving! We were walking our dogs, as we do every morning and noticed that the hill across from us was moving-like the wind was blowing tumbleweeds across our fallow field. Only, there are no tumbleweeds in Ohio, at least not that I know about. We got a little closer and looked a little harder--the gray blobs were wild turkeys. There must have been at least 100 of them. They were on two knolls and in the valley and gully between, sort of flowing slowly to the woods. We got closer and could see their long legs and their gray bar feathers. All of a sudden a big gobbler stopped and stood watching, like a guard as the females trotted past. Just about as quickly, another gobbler came up and both toms puffed up like you see in picture. They strutted and tried to intimidate each other. After the others passed by and were safely in the woods the two toms, still bickering and fighting, disappeared into the woods. Spring is finally coming!
