We noticed the tom turkey around 8:30 am today down by the fence. They circled up right in our back yard with the tom flaring on and off. They gradually moved east back out into the pasture, still with the same dancing.
We had to leave for about two hours. When we got home, Tom and his girls were still in the pasture, but nearly up to the road, dancing away.
Tonight, around 5:30 pm, we looked out the back window. There was the tom turkey and the five hens near where we first spotted them this morning. What a ritual.
