A turkey bobs its head up and down in a soybean field in early morning looking for food and to avoid detection as a walker goes by on a trail next to Adams Homestead and Nature Preserve in North Sioux City, South Dakota Monday, July 18, 2022. This week temperatures are regularly going to hit triple digits with high humidity creating tough conditions in the Siouxland region of Iowa, South Dakota and Nebraska. (photo by Jerry L Mennenga©)

Doing a walk about in nature in Siouxland, even on a hot day can always bring unexpected pleasures. Recently while finishing an early’ish walk at the Adams Homestead and Nature Preserve I saw a turkey that I am certain had hoped I had not spied him as he weaved and bobbed his way through a planted crop field dodging my attempts to photograph it until it was safely out of sight and on its way.
