Prairie Tom

"Prarire Tom"
 acrylic, 16" x 20"

   Florida is a great place to observe birds. Turkeys are one of my favorites. I live just a stones throw outside Tomoka State Park in Ormond Beach and our neighborhood is lucky enough to have deer and wild turkey walking about the streets. The males in our neighborhood, during mating season, will protect their females at all cost. I have seen folks riding their bicycles down the street, minding their own business, and from out of nowhere, a tom turkey will give chase! Turkeys are often in my driveway pecking at their own reflection in my truck bumper.
