I'm not sure if these are male or female Knight. I don't have any wild Turkeys here in the Sand Dunes to learn from. It looks like they are so cold that they only want to put one foot down at a time. I'm cold just looking at this shot.

Nice photo.

Male wild Turkeys always have red wattles under the throat.

And I too put on a sweater after looking at this picture...

Nice shot, how far away was you? Unless Im hunting, I have only been able to get about a hundred yards away from turkeys without scaring them off, and at times not even that close. Good job, looks awful cold and I imagine it is very hard for these birds to scratch any food up in this snow.

I got to about 50 feet from these 2 , it looked like they were pecking at some road salt (yuck)

Today i saw about 20 of them in a field along a Highway but my wife was driving and we dont share the same love for photography ( Was lectured on how a sudden stop on the side of the road could cause a accident lol ) and there seemed to be male and females in this bunch , never know maybe they will still be there next time i pass there.

Just so you know these are not native Birds to the Province of Quebec . They were imported about 3 years ago by most of the municipalities around were i live . The population has realy gone upwards , locals figure that there will be a Hunt on these Turkeys in about 3 more years.



Oh and thanks for taking the time

I have a Nikon D50 and I was using a Tamron 200-500mm at about forty yards out on the threesome shot and maybe twenty yards out on the one in the brush. I actually swaped that lens out the other day for the Nikon 80-400 VR ED AF lens... it's better suited for what I'm doing.
