Wild Turkeys ( Male )
A blonde driving a car became lost in a snowstorm.
She didn’t panic however, because she remembered what her dad had once told her. “If you ever get stuck in a snowstorm, just wait for a snow plow to come by and follow it.”
Sure enough, pretty soon a snow plow came by, and she started to follow it.
She followed the plow for about forty-five minutes. Finally the driver of the truck got out and asked her what she was doing.
And she explained that her dad had told her if she ever got stuck in a snow storm, to follow a plow.
The driver nodded and said, “Well, I’m done with the Wal-Mart parking lot, do you want to follow me over to Best Buy now?”
Interesting Fact: Wild Turkeys nest on the ground in dead leaves at the bases of trees, under brush piles or thick shrubbery, or occasionally in open hayfields. ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Wild_Turkey/lifehistory )

He is strutting his stuff!. Wonder what happened when he lost those missing tail feathers?
That is a good question. It is a mystery that we will never know the answer to. Thank you very much for stopping by and Happy Blogging! 🙂
Great blond story!
Thank you very much, I am glad that you enjoyed it. Happy Blogging! 🙂
Love seeing Turkeys in the wild, I’ve never been lucking enough to see one nesting though. They’re not super common in the area I grew up hiking, fishing, hunting, etc. in.
I do too enjoy coming across them, but the same as you I never seen them nesting as well. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂
We have a raft (yup, that’s what it is called) of 40 wild turkeys that live in our neighborhood. It has been interesting to see them grow over the years. There was a white hen that has reproduced and now we end up with more and more of these pale colored turkeys. They are messy and none too bright, but I’ve grown accustomed to driving/walking/running around them and I’d hate to see them go.
Wow, that is so cool, and it must be quite a sight. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your story with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂
