This gorgeous wild turkey came daily to my back yard in Rocklin, CA, where I feed the birds. He was not afraid of me, nor I of him. He let me get quite close, would have eaten from my hand if I had been prepared.
I captured on film this graceful great egret who lived in a rookery in SE Texas. The rookery was on an island and contained thousands of birds of all kinds. The waters surrounding the rookery provided protection for the birds as they were filled with alligators.
