I seem, as Grey Horse Matters has, to have been adopted by a wild turkey.
For several days now, a turkey has been lurking in my yard, most noticeably under the bird feeder. He/she seems to have taken up residence somewhere nearby. This morning when I went out he did not run away in panic when I greeted him. (Hard to tell if it's a Tom, but I thought I saw him displaying himself the other day and I don't think the females do that.)
Anyhow, for now, it is just "Turkturk" and as long as we both keep a respectful distance from each other, I'm fine with that.
I did snap a few pictures from afar.
