The Celebration Continues!

Cerro Gordo 7-5-16


The Fourth of July parades and picnics may be past; but for this North Iowa gobbler the celebration continues.  In spite of the calendar date and return of mid-summer heat, I spotted this gobbler proudly strutting his stuff in a Cerro Gordo County hay field.  Assuming he began displaying [like most gobblers did] sometime in February, this bird has been dragging his wing tips and assuming the pose for more than four straight months.  Incredible!
