Just a Silly Turkey Kind of Day
These turkeys were waddling across the road this morning. I personally don't think turkeys are very smart. Many times they wander down the road in front of the car instead of trying to get off the road to safety. This little flock was not moving very fast but they did at least make way for the car to go by.
They make a silly sort of noise as they walk. Did you know that turkeys sit in trees? Sometimes a whole flock will be in a tree and you won't notice until they get spooked and they all sort of fall to the ground and waddle away.
I also think that these turkeys are not very handsome birds. Interesting but not much to look at.
The Handbook of Nature Study has a section on wild turkeys starting on page 138.
