Our wild visitors

For a few days this week we have been having some wild visitors.  We wondered if our tom turkey would call any wild turkeys.  Well, apparently the answer is yes.
Monday evening my daughters found these visitors:
The two turkeys on the left are the wild ones.  There was a tom and a hen.  The tom and our tom were trying to fight through the fence.  My daughters went out to scare them away and got a few pictures. Here they are running away.
They've been back a few times and we have all seen them now.  Spring gobbler season is April 27-May 31.  It will be interesting to see what happens if we get a lot of hunters in the woods gobbling since our tom gobbles at every little noise.  Hopefully the hens won't try to go to the calling in the woods.  They now have 13 eggs in a nest that I am hoping they won't want to leave.
