Turkey Trot!

The Turkeys in Cambridge

We have had turkey visitors in Cambridge ever since I first moved here.  Some of the newer residents don't know what to make of them, but guys, the turkeys are more harmless than we will ever be!  These guys (and ladies) came to visit in my small sideyard and were completely fine with me gettting into their lovely pink faces to film them for several minutes!  Be nice to them!
