tom turkey

I should have called this series big birds since most of the birds are rather on the large size and not minute.

On a recent visit to see the polar bears I came across this tom with his lady friends (see next image) and he was really keeping a tight handle on them as they wandered across the grass picking at bits here and there.

I found image interesting because it was taken February 2nd,2012 long before winter has released its grip on the waterways of Winnipeg and so I can only guess that this was a goose that wintered over rather than a migratory bird. I think this past winter is the first one I can remember where there neither geese or ducks to be found in the area around the meeting of the Red and the Assiniboine rivers.

Very detailed Tom, texture and colorful feathers jumps off the page.

I was looking forward to b&w images with pelicans this year but the duck pond has been drained.
