        Nice pics, thanks for posting them. Last month I came across a whole community of nesting great blue herons, in all the dead trees in and around a big beaver pond. (Do you still call that a "rookery" if they're not crows or ravens?). Never seen that before. I counted six different nests with chicks, three chicks in each nest (so far as I could see, anyway). They were about the size of those turkey poults, longer-necked of course, and still wearing a lot of baby-fuzz. I could see another pond farther up the valley, with more dead trees and nests, but that one was across the state-land line. I had not known that herons made those big nesting communities.

          Hey Jimbo, I am a little shocked to see the young poult out in the open like that. The speed of a Peregrine Falcon, a Redtail, a goshawk or a Bald Eagle would be like taking fish in a barrel. ? ?
          Nice pics.

            they are on a walking/jogging path and are probably picking up tiny specs of gravel.

                I love watching mama turkeys and their young ones. I once saw a hen fly directly at a Coopers hawk as her poults fled into the woods at the edge of the field. The hawk turned and she flew in pursuit for nearly a hundred yards.

                  It gets harder and harder for me to get up early enough for gobbling time. I still need my sleep.
