Wild Turkeys come for Dinner and Drinks

There is a flock of wild turkeys in the area that we see from time to time. They thought that they were hiding in the grass, but are readily visible when the photos are enlarged.
There is a harvested barley field across the road with a lake nearby. These turkeys can fly up to the tree tops to roost and like to hide in the grass.
There is a very restricted hunting season on these birds in the late fall. The meat of wild turkey is delicious with a stronger flavor. More like an entire bird of dark meat. 
Because we enjoy watching these birds throughout the year, we are happy to hide and host them.
