The Turkey Train is Coming to New Port Richey-Florida

The Turkey Train is Coming to New Port Richey-Florida

Looking out the window, I saw about 30 turkeys marching across the yard. Don’t know where they came from and where they were headed but it sure looked like a Turkey Train. I think they may be heading to the woods in back of us to hide till after Turkey Day.

The Turkey Train is Coming to New Port Richey-Florida

These are Wild Turkeys. And, they come to visit every year at this time.

Toni -

Maybe they heard you're an animal activist and felt they'd be safe in your yard!  I wish we had that view from our window! 

Enjoy your day to the fullest

Best regards from the Q

Wow, what a scene! That looks like what Carolina sees everyday, but instead of turkey we have geese.

If my dad were still alive (he would be 105!) - he would say he prefers his Wild Turkey in bottles!  This is one that he had in 1978 - of course, he enjoyed the contents years ago.
Have a happy day-

John - the word is out. There are hunters in the woods back there too though.

Bud & Beth - it's fun to watch them. They run like crazy!

Lynn - I can understand that completely. That's a cute bottle too, are they collector's items? Have a fun Sunday.

Toni- was the leader of the parade carrying a sign that said "Eat More Chicken!"  I've never seen so many wild turkeys except maybe at a bar once but that's another story.

Toni - haha that is funny. What a timely photo to see them around the eating festivity. Happy Turkey Day!

Toni,  They better hide fast or someone will be having them for their dinner.

How odd that they seem to show up around Turkey Day.  When we lived in Napa, we saw flocks of wild turkeys, it seemed like everywhere we looked. A

Kathy - LOL Yes, he was carrying that sign. How did you know? I would like to hear the other story sometime too.

Mike - Happy T-Day to you too.

Will - they are kind of skinny but I gues if it's a meal for two, it would work :)

Alexandra - they probably have it programed into their Google calendar. You know, Visit Toni in November, something like that.

This is the backyard of your house?  What a beautiful view Toni!  Love the picture!

Posted by Debbie Walsh, Hudson Valley NY Real Estate 845.283-3036 (Shahar Management) about 9 years ago

Hi Toni,

 I love your backyard too. Beautiful and looks like a picture postcard. Looks like the turkeys like the yard too. I hope they are safe from the hunters.

WoW!  That is a ton of wild turkey!  I know they are having some problems out in Long Island with the wild turkeys that are terrorizing people, but they are protected!  Hope they aren't attacking anyone like they are here!

There is a flock of Wild Turkeys that dwell in the greenbelt area of the American River Parkway near my home.  The size of the flock seems to increase each year.  You remind me that I need to get down there and visit them before Thanksgiving:-)

Posted by Myrl Jeffcoat, Greater Sacramento Real Estate Agent (GreatWest Realty) about 9 years ago

Hi Toni - Those turkeys ran away from Connecticut after the nasty unexpected storm we got.  They are just finally making it all the way to Florida.  I don't think they will make very good Thanksgiving dinners after all that exercise!

Posted by Chris Canfield, Homes for Sale in Oro Valley and Tucson, Arizona (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage) about 9 years ago



I think that those turkeys are heading out of town ahead of  the big day.  That a cute photo , thanks for sharing.

Whereever they were coming from they certainly seemed to know that had picked a great spot to hang out. I can just imagine how surprised you must have been to see them.

Posted by Carl Winters about 9 years ago

Toni, wonderful photo of these wild turkeys.  I'm sure someone is looking for a great turkey dinner.  They'd better hurry and hide.

Posted by Kay Van Kampen, Realtor®, Springfield Mo Real Estate (RE/MAX Broker, RE/MAX) about 9 years ago

Howdy and evening Toni

Toni, that there sure is a mighty fine looking group of Turkeys. They sure do look like a Train going along. I sure bet they are heading to a good hiding spot till after Turkey Day.

Have a good one

Toni, I think that the Turkey Train must extend to Northern California! I see a whole "family" of turkeys all the time around here. :)

Those turkeys look like they are an inspiration for a PBS documentary special!

I think nature follows you everywhere you go!

I love it!

Kristin - unfortunately, I heard shots from the woods yesterday so I'm going to be counting Turkeys today.

Jennifer - We had a problem last year with one aggressive male who kept seeing himself in our windows and would peck so hard I thought he would break the glass. The pictures on my wall are of him. You can read about it here Home Invasion in New Port Richey.

Myrl - I'm sure you meant that you were going to shoot them with your camera :)

Chris - they are rather thin and bedraggled looking :)

Michelle - smart turkeys!!!

Ceil & Carl - actually, we have a few all the time, but the size of this herd (?) was what was surprising.

Kay - I think so too. We have a rather dense wood at the back and they usually head over there if they are smart.

Dale - It was fun to watch them all spread out in a line like that.

Leilani - must be their cousins. Maybe these guys just came back from a visit to your crew.

Patricia - you may be right! I think I just look for it more than other people do. :)

You capture the best photos and turn them into such cute posts!  I have to go read about your home invasion now.  :) Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope they steer clear of any and all hunters!  My hubby is a hunter (boo) but he didn't get any deer again!

Posted by Kristin Johnston - REALTOR®, Giving Back With Each Home Sold! (RE/MAX Realty Center ) about 9 years ago

Cara - thanks; Happy Thanksgiving to you!

Kristin - I hope so too. I'm glad the deer steered clear of your hubby. :)

Posted by Toni Weidman, 20+ Years Selling Homes in New Port Richey, FL (Sailwinds Realty) about 9 years ago

Toni,  That is so funny that you have turkeys running wild in your area.  I'm sure they don't want to be saddled with some stuffing and gravy anytime soon.

Posted by Belinda Spillman, Colorado Living! (Aspen Lane Real Estate Colorful Colorado) about 9 years ago

Toni, that does look like a Turkey train. You sure get the shots. I'm good with flowers that stay still....not so good with the wildlife. I can't even get our golden retriever to pose for me. She hard to get good shots shy I guess. I'll have to focus on plant life rather than wildlife. LOL! Have a wonderful evening and a beautiful Thanksgiving!

Posted by Jeanean Gendron, Specializing in Selling Unique Properties (The Address Realty) about 9 years ago

Belinda - I think you're right! They have been hiding so far this week.

Jeanean - I'm always ready for that one shot and I get really mad if I miss it. Happy Thanksgiving to you too!
