adventures in nature

turkey love

Prehistoric and possibly repugnant looking to some – the turkey is an amazing bird. Their feathers have the most beautiful iridescence, a stark contrast to their bald heads, the males adorned with scrotum-like appendages hanging from their necks.

Yes, I went there. C’mon, seriously? Look at that thing!!

What a curious looking creature, one that many of us take for granted – most of us just see it as packaged meat in the grocery store. This bird deserves  the utmost respect – a bird that Benjamin Franklin endorsed to be the national bird instead of the bald eagle.
