What a beautiful display!
But she didn't seem all that impressed. Too bad.

Boy, whoever said turkeys were ugly birds never saw this! He looks like an Indian Cheif in full dress. We had turkeys in our back lot at our other house too, but I never saw this! Maybe we had only females. This video was beautiful.

I love to see them puffed up like this. I see it occasionally when they are in a group out of season.Mabye they are just reinforcing their bond??
