Yesterday the usual gang of roughly three dozen turkeys came by, like clockwork, to hunt for fallen sunflower seeds beneath the feeder. You’re right, a group of turkeys is not called a gang, but is more appropriately called a rafter of turkeys. I have to look that up each year. Two turkeys decided that the fallen seed was just not enough, so they flew into the cherry tree to get a closer look.
I decided to help the rafter by dumping a few scoops of sunflower seeds over the railing, which was well received. As always, the turkeys hung around for about 20 minutes before moving on.
