I accidentally typed ‘Wild Turkey in the Dog.’ That sounds like a bizarre fetish movie.
Anyway, at 7 this morning I was
laying, half comatose sitting on the couch reading a book when I heard the weirdest barking noise. Kind of like a bird, but not. Or maybe like a dying bird mixed with seal. After 10 minutes I couldn’t take it anymore, I had to see what in the world makes this horrendous noise.
I opened the front door and standing in the road was a hen turkey. She took off down the road towards the cemetery and I got a few pictures of her in the fog.
By the way, if you have never seen a turkey run before, it is enchanting. Seeing a gigantic tom take off in flight looks like something defying the laws of nature, but running is enchanting.
At this point listening to animals make weird noises takes up approximately 20% of my life.
If you’re curious about the sound that girl was making, watch this video. Then picture it coming from a bird twenty feet from your head.
Have a good weekend!
