Over the past several years of walking at the Lafayette Reservoir, we’ve noticed more and more wild turkeys on the grounds.  But this year was the first time we saw what we assume to be a mating ritual.  Every day for weeks, some of the turkeys are strutting their stuff, puffing up their bodies, spreading their tails, and … most fun of all – doing a synchronized set-piece where three or four turkeys all rotate in unison … pretty amazing!

Now there’s something to look forward to next year!
