Turkey Time III

The month of November is half over and that means that Thanksgiving is drawing near.

Of course this is the time of year when turkeys start to look nervous.

Wild Turkey Head - Dublin, California - ThanksgivingThis picture is from my post Turkey Month. Doesn’t this turkey look a little bit nervous?

Wild Turkeys on Car - Wild Turkey - Thanksgiving - Dublin, CaliforniaUsually around this time of year we have Wild Turkeys visiting our parking lot at work. These two birds were featured in my post: More Turkeys

Thanksgiving Turkey - Thanksgiving Feast - Canadian ThanksgivingOf course this is how most of us will be seeing turkeys this month. This picture comes from my post Turkey Time II.

I am also Thinking of President Lincoln tonight. On October 3, 1863 he proclaimed a National Day of Thanksgiving for the final Thursday in November and it has been observed annually since that time. The Gettysburg Address was also given in November of 1863, but more on that event later this week.

Are you ready for some turkey?

  1. Ugly critters! What a shame for them that they taste so good!

  2. I’ll be in Turkey for turkey day. Alas. You’re right, though, they seem to know what’s coming for them. Stuffing!
    Happy Thanksgiving!
