Turkeys versus Bull Snake

A couple of times this summer the turkeys have "found" a snake. When they find a snake, they sure let me know. They make the oddest sound--a sound they don't make any other time. It is apparently their "I found a snake" sound.

This one was hidden pretty well, and he laid very still while all the commotion was going on around him.

What commotion?

This commotion (with a little help from Sophie and Evie):

The turkeys thought about eating the snake, but they were already stuffed.

Thanks folks, I'll be here all night. Don't forget to tip your server.

Not a big fan of snakes. Good that you've got a personal alarm system there to alert you not to step on one of those snakes.

When I woke up this morning I had no idea I'd learn something new about turkey behavior. I'm going to enjoy spreading this information around at parties ;)

Oh I have a hard time reading posts with snakes in them! I about jumped out of my chair!
