City Wild Turkeys

Going my way?

Met up with an unusual sight on the way home a few weeks ago…a flock of Wild Turkeys in the road.  Mind you–this is not out in the country, suburban area of Sacramento!

Of course, I had to pull over, park, and grab my camera–just happened to have it in the front seat.  (Always rides “shotgun!”)

Enjoyed watching the play over an apple. Not sure whether I was more entertained–or they were?

An apple a day...


The "5 second rule" was applied


Cars don't bother them at all!

See, got it back after dropping it! 5 second rule applies to turkeys too!  The rule for some folks…if a food item drops on the floor and there less than 5 seconds–still good!  Can’t really recommend–depends what it is and where you dropped it!

We are taking over!

One last shot of a “Jay-walking” Turkey–or, is it “Turkey-Walking?”

It was a fun encounter!
