Turkey Trot

This post title has been wandering around in my head for a few days. Turkey Trot brings back memories of fun runs on Thanksgiving Day when I lived in Kansas City.

Wild Turkeys, turkey trot, running turkeys, goggle gobbleThese turkeys were trotting along at a good pace and gobbling as they went along. It was actually quite funny to watch. They were definitely on a mission.

Here are two of them as they passed me. A couple of them looked my way, but they were intent on where they were going.

I see wild turkeys almost everyday at work. We have a large rafter of turkeys that have lived in the area for many years.

Tonight there were about five or six of them around the front of my car when I was getting ready to leave.  Luckily I needed to back up and not go forward 🙂
