Turkeys are crazy looking birds, what with their bare, iridescent heads, the long feathers hanging off of the middle of their breast, and dinosaur legs that would have fit into a scene from Jurassic Park. In my town, there are large flocks of wild turkeys. They used to be shy and reclusive animals. No longer! Even brave dog Lily leaves them alone.
Safe travels over the Thanksgiving break, everyone! And, if you come across a flock of these turkeys, do brake while they saunter out of the way!
