Courtship is in full display on the Mendonoma Coast!

For courtship displays, it doesn't get any better than a Tom Turkey. Jon Loveless captured this photo recently.

There has to be a hen or two close by. Here's a photo Cathleen Crosby got of a Tom trying to impress a gal.

To show you the intense colors of the male, here's a popular photo by Siegfried Matull. He caught it flying out of a hedgerow.
