Turkeys In the Wood at Mount Desert Island Maine

 I am currently workamping in Maine and was surprised the other day.  I was in the primitive camping area of the RV park and stumbled upon a couple of turkeys.  I was without a camera and could not  get a picture.  They were hens with a couple of dozen chicks with them.  Naturally, when I did have my  camera, the turkeys were no where to be found.  Finally I came across a turkey when I had the camera.  She was protecting her young and when I got close, she got up and they walked away. 
There was a number of chicks up under her wings.  I am still looking for the large group and hope to get pictures.  I had no idea turkeys lived this far north.
