Thistle Hill Farm Wild Turkeys

…for Thanksgiving.  The advance guard of a flock of wild turkeys crossing Thistle Hill farm.

We’ve seen the return of a number of birds to the farm since we eliminated all “cides” about 20 years ago.  In fact there’s been an up-swing of all wildlife including our very own resident bear.

Almost all our pastures have adjacent riparian areas including water.  But our partners are increasing bold.  These turkeys are right in front of the main house.
