I was on my way home turning from C ave onto Blairs Ferry when I happened to look over and saw not one, but seven wild turkeys foraging in the landscaping of the bank on the corner. I quickly turned into the parking lot and snapped these photos from my phone. At one point there was a slight break in traffic and six of the seven crossed the road to the Rockwell complex, leaving one in the group behind. It seemed to take him a minute or so to realize he was suddenly alone. Almost right as the traffic light turned green he stepped into the street to follow, but had to turn back a couple of times, nearly getting hit! Luckily today was not his day, and after a couple more attempts he managed to catch up with the rest of the flock without slowing down too much rush-hour traffic.
