dining al fresco

I had to stop for these two young turkeys (note the spiky do on the guy on the right) to cross in front of my car on their way to another yard for a snack. They were seen munching in urban Minneapolis in a residential area near a busy 4-lane street.
One never knows who you might run into on the road!

My mother-in-law lives on 10 acres here in Michigan. There have been time when the house is surrounded by no less than 30 turkeys. We were a little worried that they were gonna try & take over!

Ben Franklin proposed them as national bird. Aloha-
