There's a flock of wild turkeys near our house.
(I don't know much about wild turkeys, or any turkeys, really. Are they eating bugs or grass?)
They look rather majestic with that mountain background, don't you think? This reminds me that Benjamin Franklin suggested the wild turkey as the national bird, rather than the bald eagle, which may not be as weird as it sounds, considering that bald eagles are scavengers and wild turkeys are highly intelligent.
I've heard of a cat on a hot tin roof, but there's also a bird on a wire. (How long do you think that wire can hold that big, fat turkey?)
Uh, oh...looks like he heard something...
...and made the great escape!
Do you like turkeys?
As food, friends, or our alternate national bird?
Any category welcome!
