That really does look like a turkey! I say that because we have 'scrub turkeys' but they aren't really turkeys like yours are. Do your turkeys go up into trees at night to roost? I will do you a link in a minute, to show you our resident 'turkeys' of which we have up to 11 visiting at one time. When they have a mind to, they can move an awful lot of earth, but I forgive them as they are loaded with character!

See you in a minute with the link! (you can delete it after you've seen it, no worries, as I don't want to redirect anyone to my lousy site, they are much better off staying here, but you might be interested in it, Jean. :)

Cheers, Sue

Hello again, Jean, I hope you dont' mind me doing these links for you! Here is the first one, here is the second one and here is the third one! I hope they work alright and you get to see my turkeys..

Very kind regards, Sue

Sue, you are certainly one very talented woman!

Thank you so very much for showing me your scrub turkeys. I suppose they do go up in trees at night, I don't really know as I have only seen them a few times and only briefly each time. I think most birds roost in the trees. This one is part of a flock that is a recent arrival to the area. There are not any here at my house yet, but maybe one day. There was a couple of wild turkeys living in the town of Franklin and visiting McDonalds every day but I think they were relocated out of town.

Hi Jean, nice turkey and tree :) You should change your photo link in the Categories game to 'thumbnail' size (from 'small') before the mods get mad ;) Think I'll post another tree before sleeping - it'll give you a chance to take the lead.

Thank you, Brian. I apologize for the small. I didn't even notice. Just now, I made the change.

Thanks again for this fun game!

You're welcome, Jean. Glad that there are so many people interested in keeping these games going. Let's see if you can maintain your lead :)

Brian, I'm so glad to learn about trees in this fun way! There are so many varieties that this game could go on for a long while and someone could overtake me for sure. :))

You're right, Jean. Many 1000's of species to go, but not too many tree-experts in the forum. It'll end someday soon, I guess ;)

It is difficult to for me to believe that I know enough about trees to win such a game. I enjoy to play but would not expect to win on my puny bits of knowledge!

It must be that the game is too new for the tree experts to have stumbled in to find the game. :)
