Recent sighting received February 6, 2017:

Lise Balthazar, Sheridan Rapids: Photos of wild turkeys.

They seemed to be ” having an argument . . .  It looks like they locked beaks and kept pushing each other, back and forth. I had never seen that behavior before: normally, there’s a dominant one who walks in circles around another turkey crouching on the ground. I am not sure who won this argument, as they disappeared into the woods. ”
