Turkeys Roosting

Four adult turkeys and countless poults put on a show yesterday. The first photo below shows one of the adults roosting in a tree with eight poults tucked under her wings.  The second photo shows the poults on the limb after the hen flew away to another tree.  One by one, the poults flew to join her at the other tree.
