Turkey Walk Tuesday

There are lots of wild baby turkeys in our neighborhood. Mom has seen them several times.

On Saturday, when Mom and Mim-may were coming home from their trip to the Museum,

they had to stop to watch the little turkeys 

and their Moms cross the street.

They all got across safely.

Oooh - how much fun might it be to chase those big birdies, Millie? I'm pleased that the traffic stopped and they all got across the road safely, but what about the next time they want to cross? Perhaps your mom could organise a team of volunteers to take it in turns to stand on the side of the road and stop the traffic when they come back the other way!

So pleased to hear that on that day the story had a happy ending - I fear for them, though, they may not be so lucky another time.

I bet those little turkeys are a little bit mean if they run into a pussy cat.

It always makes me happy to see people stop to let babies cross the road. Where I live, it is usually ducks or geese. :-)

Those turkeys are A LOT of mean if anybody runs into them. Mom says the adults are as big as she is!!!

Millie, did you know that a group of wild turkeys is called a "Rafter". The lady turkeys can lay as many as 18 eggs at a time. The babies are called "poults" when hatched & adolescent are "Jakes". Wild turkeys sleep up in trees at night and can run as fast as 25 miles per hour going full tilt. They can fly short distances and can are as fast as 55 MPH or as fast as a track star.They can also fly at speeds up to 55 MPH when flying short distances. Who knew wild turkeys were so fascinating Millie?

Mum sees lots of wildlife going to and from day hunting. Turkey, sand hill cranes, vishus deers. Plus horsies who are not wild.
