I finally had the opportunity and presence of mind to get my phone ready to videotape Todd chase turkeys. I was about to go outside and put away some firewood when I saw two of them at the back of the garden and another half-dozen in the back left corner of the backyard.
I apologize ahead of time for the fact that you can't really see the turkeys fly away. If there's a zoom on this thing, I didn't know where it was when I needed it. As the camera pans to the left, you can see one of them start to take flight but there's at least 6 more ahead of him flying towards the trees on the left. The dark background of the trees is why you can't see them, but some are a good 20 feet off the ground flying all the way to the trees at the back of the field.
He loves to chase them, as long as he knows it's okay and he'll stop when you tell him to if necessary. But as you can see in this clip, he doesn't have to see them to chase them. He takes off around the right side of the garden when the turkeys are elsewhere. And he wasn't as aggressive in his pursuit this time as usual, and you'll see why at the end of the clip. Hope you enjoy this nonetheless.
