    They are molting into their fall grey color, from their summer orange/brown. They are a migratory game bird in South Dakota, if I am not mistaken.

    We have a season on them down in Tx. Gotta be careful when hunting them as they are known to have whooping cranes flying with them during migration, They are a really big bird and are very noisy when flying and seldom make a perfect vee like geese. When we see these, we know the geese are soon to be flying too.

    Here is mom and dad and the remaining youngster. There where two youngsters originally. They both did not make it through the first week of June. Red-Tailed Hawk was very efficient hunter, along with the Yotes, Coons, Owls, etc. Seen the Hawk kill two released Pheasants, within five minutes of each other.

    My dog was barking like hell yesterday afternoon, turns out there were 2 turkeys in the driveway pecking at the chrome rear wheel hub on my superduty truck. They seen their reflection and wanted to reestablish the peck order.
