For the Love of Turkeys
Friday, April 26, 2019
Cloud 9 farm is a sanctuary for wildlife and turkeys are so prevalent in Western North Carolina but here but here, they have full roam of the 200 acre farm and don't have to interact with highway traffic, roads or people. In the spring, especially, you'll want to be here because mating season is upon us. It's when the tom turkeys fan their tails and gobble with importance hoping to attract hens for their harem. Hens act oblivious by continuing to forage around but you can tell they are well aware of the courting around them as they stay close to the flock. Many good photography moments can be seen just by sitting on our pasture observation bench next to their playground pasture.
