If they are seeking a morning breakfast of grasshoppers and other early rising insects, several dine together.&nbsp; At night, they gather in &nbsp;large groups to roost in a big tree that provides each bird its own branch.&nbsp; However, they perch close enough to one another for the turkey equivalent of <em>The Walton’s</em> “Goodnight, John-boy” evening song.</p><p> Mon, 12 May 2014 09:45:00 +0000 Karen Madorin 31591 at http://hppr.org Turkey Lonely Hearts Club Blooming Turkeys http://hppr.org/post/blooming-turkeys <p></p><p>Outback Steakhouse may advertise blooming onions, but I know where turkeys bloom in&nbsp; green fields near my house.&nbsp; Like a rose going from a tight bud to full summer bloom, those big ol’ gobblers put on a show.
