What's a poor turkey to do? These is six inches of snow on the ground so the food they are used to eat is covered, and it's cold, and they need food? But I don't think this gobbler can quite reach the suet we have hanging for the woodpeckers.
Our neighborhood flock of 20+ turkeys were in hiding after the recent cold and snow, but when the temperatures started rising, the big birds came our looking for food. Mary Beth expertly captured this image of one of the turkeys looking - almost anywhere - for food on our back deck. We have another feeder a few feet away usually filled with safflower, but, as you see below, that was not in reach either.
