Lonely (or vain) Turkey
This afternoon as I was about to go out the door from school, I saw what I thought, at first, was a big lump on the ground beside a car in the parking lot. On closer examination, I realized that it was a turkey...huddled beside the car, looking at his reflection!
While I watched, he pecked at himself, or gave himself a kiss??? Normally, we see a flock of turkeys, so maybe his was lonely and trying to make friends with the reflected turkey.
He was so distracted with the mirror-turkey that I was able to get quite close before he got up and strolled away.
