I'm SO Lonely...Oh So Lonely...

The song by the Beach Boys, "I'm So Lonely"... came to mind as I looked out the window and saw this turkey wandering around without any hens to accompany him in his ramblings about the timber. I snuck out the back door after turning the sound down on the television. Opened the door slowly, and made sure I didn't make a real heavy noise on the wooden steps that sit low for my short legs.

No!No!!! I didn't go out with a gun, or a bow. The camera was in hand. He had made another foray through the yard around noon a couple days before. Caught a glimpse of his side profile,then tail feathers as he was exiting. Must have heard me rambling around the house or saw motion by the windows. He is in a hurry now wanted to head for denser cover. To much attention from the non-turkey sector. It didn't take him long to get beyond my view. The weather remains unsettled ,but so far no more snow here. Just the forecast for more unneeded rain. It didn't come to mind in my hurry to get pictures, to try out my turkey calling skill, or lack there-of ,on this wayward Tom...

windyridge- Could very well be "So lonely"...The rendition that "Alvin and the Chipmunks" sing on the new movie. ;) They are fun to watch and listen to.

SimplyOutdoors - I really do need to get my license so I can chase that bird with more sting than a camera.

Poor turkey, he does need some company. Obviously Arthur would be glad to see him, or Jeff at Lowcountry Hunting.

Oh, he will find some hen one day or the end of a barrel...good pictures cdgarden! Thanks for sharing! :)

Kristine- I was trying to figure out a way to send this Turkey off to lower Michigan to see Arthur, but sadly I think he wouldn't make it that far. ;) To many other hunters looking for the same kind of luck.

Marian- Yes, that turkey would make a great ornament at the end of a shotgun. Thanks for stopping by.
